Dental disease is the most common disease seen by veterinarians. Some signs that your pet may have dental disease are
- Bad breath
- Yellow or discolored teeth
- Loose teeth
- Red or inflamed gums
- A swollen jaw or mouth
- Pain when eating or chewing
It is important to have your pet checked for dental disease as this can have major impacts on your pet's organs, including the heart, liver and kidneys.
Our doctors at CVH can preform routine dental cleanings as well as extraction of loose teeth. This will benefit your pet by reducing the amount of plaque and tarter creating better smelling breath. Good oral hygiene at home can also increase the time between professional cleanings.
