Good dental care is an important aspect of your dog and cat’s health care routine. Just like humans, bacteria and plaque builds up on your pet’s teeth, hardening into tartar, causing gingivitis, receding gums, tooth loss and mouth pain. Worse, untreated dental disease can lead to infection and potential infection of other organ systems. Professional dental care is a very important part of your pet’s wellness care plan by delaying or eliminating various dental diseases and will have a positive impact on your pet’s overall health.
Dental care for dogs and cats at Prairiehaven Animal Hospital includes:
We recommend you brush your dog and cat’s teeth at home. At home brushing 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. We have techniques and suggestions on how to best brush your cat and dog’s teeth at home. Ask us for more information during your pet’s next wellness exam or give us a call.
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:
This Animal Hospital is the greatest! Such a wonderful staff and facility. I appreciated how everything was explained to me and all my questions were answered. Such a wonderful addition to Sherman.
Charlie recently had his teeth cleaned at Prairiehaven Animal Hospital - his teeth look fantastic and no more bad breath! Everything was explained to me in detail prior to the appointment, and the cost were well within the estimate given to me and very reasonable. Heather met with me when I picked him up and thoroughly explained his care during the process and follow up care needed at home. She also called me the next day to make sure he was doing okay and to see if I had any questions or concerns. Charlie and I both love Prairiehaven and I highly recommend them. Not only is the care there outstanding but the staff are very knowledgeable and friendly
