Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Dental disease leads to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population in Keller, TX.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet’s health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pet’s dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, rinses, water additives, gel sealants, and regular inspection. Ask us for a list of the products that we recommend for oral home care.
The only effective way to treat your pet’s dental disease is through professional scaling, polishing and total oral assessments under anesthesia.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, red gums, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us today to learn more and schedule your pet’s dental cleaning/treatment.
