Does bad breath have you shying away from your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet could benefit from a visit to the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your best friend’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Animals First + Veterinary Hospital, Urgent Care & Wellness Center include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some common signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free at home.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your furry family member. The comprehensive dental services at Animals First + Veterinary Hospital, Urgent Care & Wellness Center can help get you there!
