Just like people, pets also need quality oral care to keep them happy and healthy. When dental care is neglected, it can lead to infections, tooth pain, and diseases. At Advanced Mobile Vet, we come to you to provide any necessary dental services than your cat or dog may need. Before scheduling your appointment, learn more about the importance of dental care below!
Importance of Pet Dental Care
Pets are prone to bad breath, tooth decay, and dental disease due to plaque buildup on their teeth. These issues can be prevented through dental care at home and professional cleanings. Brushing your pet’s teeth regularly at home can help prevent plaque from accumulating. Along with that, dental cleanings can remove any plaque from your pet’s gums and teeth to ensure his or her mouth is healthy.
At Advanced Mobile Vet, we recommend annual dental checkups for your pet, so we can monitor its oral health. The checkups allow us to address problems early before they become major issues. Some signs that your pet needs dental care include:
- Foul breath
- Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
- Visible plaque or tartar buildup
- Discolored teeth
- Excessive drooling
- Broken or loose teeth
- Swelling in or around your pet’s mouth
What to Expect During a Dental Exam and Cleaning
During a dental exam, our veterinarian will examine your pet’s mouth, teeth and gums for signs of infection or disease. We’ll also take x-rays, which will help us see below the gum line and check for periodontal disease. If we discover oral health problems, we’ll discuss them with you and recommend the necessary treatment. Afterward, we’ll clean your pet’s teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup that can cause dental disease. Our veterinarian will sedate your pet to keep him or her comfortable and still during these dental procedures.
At-Home Dental Care
Professional dental care should be combined with at-home dental care to keep your pet’s teeth healthy and clean. We recommend brushing your pet’s teeth daily with special pet toothpaste to minimize plaque buildup. You can also purchase special chews and toys that help keep your pet’s teeth clean.
