The most common disease found in household pets is periodontal disease. In fact, more than 80% of dogs over 3 years of age have periodontal disease. Contributing to this problem is the fact that animals often won’t show any changes in behavior when they’re experiencing mouth pain. The best way to ensure that your pet’s oral health is being taken care of is to have their teeth examined during a routine checkup.
At our animal hospital, we do more than just identify any issues with a pet’s oral health; we also provide cleaning and oral surgery services as well. Some common indicators that your pet may require dental care include excessive drooling, bad breath, swollen or bleeding gums. If your pet hasn’t had their teeth checked, we would encourage you to give us a call today to schedule an appointment.
