We offer a variety of dental services ranging from preventive care to treatment of dental diseases, including dental cleanings.
Increased awareness of the need for proper dental care is always a concern when it comes to pets.
Oral disease can include periodontitis, broken teeth and resorptive lesions. Symptoms of periodontal disease include build-up of tartar along the gum line, inflamed gums and persistent bad breath.
In dogs, broken teeth are a common problem. Resorptive lesions (feline cavities) are the most common tooth disease in domestic cats. Studies show that about 28% of domestic cats develop at least one of these painful lesions during their lifetime.
The first step in preventing oral disease is a routine physical examination including a dental exam. Pet owners should practice a regular dental care regimen at home, which may include brushing the pet’s teeth with specially formulated toothpaste. Schedule regular follow-up care with us and ask about specially formulated foods with proven benefits in plaque and tartar removal.
Dental Care For Your Pet – Three Steps to Success
Your pet needs dental care – regular, professional care from your veterinarian, as well as care at home from you. We recommend that pet owners follow three basic steps:
- Schedule a dental exam with Animal House Hospital. Don’t wait for the annual checkup if you suspect a problem.
- Begin a dental care regimen at home. We at Animal House Hospital can suggest steps that may include brushing your pet’s teeth. One of the most convenient and effective ways to combat oral disease is feeding specially formulated foods proven effective in combating plaque and tartar buildup.
- Schedule regular veterinary check ups at Animal House Hospital. These are essential in helping us monitor the progress of your pet’s dental health routine. Our team can help you schedule the appropriate visits.
