Unless you regularly provide your dogs or cats some form of dental care at home, you're neglecting a very important aspect of your pet’s overall health, veterinary dentistry. And even if you brush your pet’s teeth and feed them veterinary-approved dental chews, there are a number of pet dental services and conditions that pet owners are either unequipped or unable to treat on their own. Fortunately, El Dorado's Veterinary Dentistry and Animal Dental Care Services has the equipment and expertise necessary to treat all forms of pet dental diseases and problems that can arise. We also provide cat and dog teeth cleaning and dentistry services that can promote better pet health through better pet oral hygiene.
Good oral hygiene is just as important for dogs and cats as it is for humans. Unfortunately, studies by the American Animal Hospital Association reveal that nearly two-thirds of owners do not provide their pets with veterinary-recommended dental care. This is alarming considering the negative effect that poor oral hygiene can have on the health (and happiness) of dogs and cats. For example, veterinary dentistry studies have shown a link between gum disease in dogs and an increase in the occurrence of canine heart disease. Good oral hygiene will also improve your pet’s breath, which is great news if you enjoy receiving kisses from your dog or cat.
Dogs and cats, like all humans, can experience a number of dental problems and you want to make sure you're working with the best pet dental service providers in cat and dog dentistry. The good news is that the veterinary staff at El Dorado Animal Hospital is trained and equipped to provide a full range of pet dental services and handle every facet of animal dental care. Along with regular teeth cleanings and check-ups as recommended by your veterinarian/dentist, bring your furry friend in for dental care if you recognize any of these oral problems in your dog or cat:
Although there’s no substitute for veterinary dentistry and proper pet dental services, good oral hygiene starts at home. See your veterinarian for specific recommendations on dog teeth cleaning and how to care for your pet’s teeth. In the meantime, here are some general tips to maintain good pet oral hygiene at home:
