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. And even if you brush your pet’s teeth and feed them veterinary-approved dental chews, there are a number of conditions that pet owners are either unequipped or unable to treat on their own. Fortunately, El Dorado Animal Hospital has the equipment and expertise necessary to treat all forms of pet dental diseases and problems that can arise. We also provide dog and cat teeth cleaning 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 pet owners do no 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, 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 humans, can experience a number of dental problems. The good news is that the veterinary staff at El Dorado Animal Hospital is trained and equipped to handle every facet of animal dental care. Along with regular teeth cleanings and check-ups as recommended by your veterinarian, bring your pet in for dental service if you recognize any of these oral problems in your dog or cat:
