Dental pain can be excruciating for your pet. And while they can’t just come out and tell us what’s wrong, there are ways poor oral health manifests itself. If your pet has stopped eating, their breath smells unusually bad, or they constantly rub their mouth, bring them in. Poor dental health can lead to issues with the kidneys, heart, and liver so it’s important to address any issue as soon as possible.
Veterinary Dentistry that protects your pet’s smile!
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 instruction. WellHaven is a leading provider of Coon Rapids, MN veterinary care, your home care with our dental services is the perfect combination to keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy!
