Is stinky breath coming between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, bad breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s likely a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can attract dangerous bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and lead to a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this is entirely preventable!
The professional dentistry services at Country Grove Veterinary Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the common signs of dental disease in dogs and cats 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 exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you what you can do at home to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free in between appointments.
You deserve to enjoy lots of kisses and cuddles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Country Grove Veterinary Clinic can help get you there!
