Proper dental care is a crucial part of maintaining your pet’s health. At-home brushing, an annual dental exam, and routine professional cleaning can keep them healthier longer. Without good dental hygiene, bacteria and plaque can buildup on your pet’s teeth, hardening into tartar which can develop into gingivitis. Gingivitis will cause receding gums, tooth loss, and if left untreated, severe pain, and infections with the potential to affect other organs.
Both dogs and cats require routine preventative dental care. We offer advice on home dental care, and give you options on how to achieve the best results. Ask us how we can assist you in providing dental care for your pet.
Salmon Brook Veterinary Hospital is dedicated to providing the following comprehensive, preventative dental services for both dogs and cats:
Brushing your pet’s teeth every day can help reduce or eliminate plaque buildup. Plaque, which is an accumulation of bacteria, will progress to periodontitis, which is characterized by pockets of chronic infection, oral pain, and severe infections. Left untreated, it will eventually loosen and destroy the tooth and possibly lead to bone loss. The infection under the gum line can also spread to the liver, kidneys, and heart.
Please call us to schedule an appointment with one of our veterinarians if your dog or cat is exhibiting any of these signs of dental diseases:
