Is bad breath coming between you and your pet?
Despite what you may have heard, foul breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, to the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can attract and harbor dangerous bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
Fortunately, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Hiawasee Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the 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 a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free in between professional cleanings.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Hiawasee Animal Hospital can help get you there!
