Pet Dental Services in Coon Rapids, MN

Regular pet dental care is vital to their oral and overall health, but most cats and dogs don’t get the oral care they need to stay healthy. Dental pain can be excruciating for your pet. And while they can’t just come out and tell us what’s wrong, you shouldn’t wait for clear signs of health issues to take action.

Comprehensive Cat and Dog Dental Care

Pets need proper dental care just like we humans do. Neglecting their oral hygiene can lead to a host of issues that impact their quality of life and even shorten their lifespan.

Regular visits to a pet dentist are crucial for maintaining your furry friend’s oral health. During these appointments, we examine your pet’s teeth and gums, looking for any signs of infection or disease. We also perform dental cleaning to remove tartar buildup and plaque from your pet’s teeth.

Prevent Pet Gum Disease

Gum disease is one of the most common oral health issues in pets. This happens when plaque and bacteria build up on their teeth, causing inflammation and infection in the gums.
We recommend annual dental exams and can schedule dental cleanings when they are needed.

Be on the lookout for these signs that may indicate your pet requires immediate dental care:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Inflammation of the gums
  • Difficulty eating or chewing
  • Less of an appetite
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Restless behavior

Don’t let dental problems dim your pet’s smile! At WellHaven Pet Health, we offer dentistry services designed for optimal oral health and overall well-being. We address everything from plaque build-up to hidden problems, ensuring your beloved pet’s smile shines as bright as their personality.
