A healthy smile isn’t just something for humans. Our pets need clean teeth and healthy gums too! Unfortunately, they can’t take care of this task on their own, so it’s up to us – as caring pet parents and veterinary professionals – to make sure their dental health care needs are addressed on a regular basis. Ocean Shores Animal Hospital offers comprehensive, professional pet dentistry services which includes both routine, preventative care as well as the advanced treatment of existing oral health problems.
Many otherwise responsible pet owners fail to recognize the seriousness of their pets’ oral health. The result is the alarming statistic of more than 70% of adult dogs and cats suffering from some type of dental problem – up to and including periodontal disease. Not only can this result in bad breath and tooth loss, but it can actually lead to other, more serious medical problems throughout your pet’s entire body.
At Ocean Shores Animal Hospital, we want to help your loved one beat the odds and enjoy a clean, healthy mouth for life. Whether it’s an annual exam or cleaning, or something more complex, such as digital dental x-rays or oral surgery – we’ve got the services and experience to handle all of pet’s oral health care needs. Even if the topic of pet dentistry is something you haven’t given much thought, it’s never too late to start!
Some of the signs to watch for when it comes to your pet’s dental health include:
If you notice any of these things, we recommend scheduling a dental exam right away. The sooner we can identify potential dental concerns, the sooner we can get the problem under control and the better the chances of a positive outcome for your pet.
We’ll even work with you to show you ways that you can help your furbaby maintain good dental health at home, in between vet visits. From demonstrations of proper home brushing techniques to advice and recommendations on pet dental care products, we want to partner with you in this important endeavor. Together, we’ll work hard to have your loved one smiling pretty for many years to come!
