Without a good set of teeth, how will your dog be able to carry around sticks or your cat attack their toys? Beyond affecting their playful tendencies, poor dental health can also lead to serious health conditions. Infections can move from the mouth to your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart via your pet’s bloodstream. By removing plaque, pulling damaged teeth, and regularly scheduled cleanings, your pet will remain happy, healthy, and playful as ever.
Protect your pet’s smile with pet dental services!
Your pet’s oral care is more important than you think. Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. Dental disease can lead to infections that can spread through the bloodstream to affect major organs such as your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart. We recommend annual dental exams to get a baseline of your pet’s oral health. We’re also able to schedule dental cleanings when appropriate.
Unsure if your pet is having dental issues? Symptoms like bad breath, plaque build-up, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite are signs that your furbaby’s teeth may require veterinary attention.
In addition to regularly scheduled dental exams, we also offer dental x-rays and dental cleaning appointments. X-rays help us view and then appropriately treat teeth and bone that are hidden from view, as well as what’s going on under the gumline. X-rays can often reveal hidden and painful conditions that are hidden from the naked eye.
During a dental exam, we’ll also discuss home teeth cleaning tips and brushing instructions. Your home care with our Bloomington, MN pet dental services is the perfect combination to keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy!
