Routine Pet Exams
As a rule, most pets should visit the veterinarian once a year. Puppies or pets who are growing older might benefit from semi-annual visits. During your regular exam, your veterinarian will monitor their their weight, eyesight, teeth, gums and overall general condition. After their check-up, we will sit with you to discuss your pet’s health.
We may suggest ways to implement better dental hygiene for your pet, including brushing their teeth regularly. Just like humans, your pet’s teethe need to be cleaned, and not just at their annual dental exam. We also encourage providing your pet with treats and toys that promote better dental health.
Pet Dental Exams
Many diseases and conditions can be tied to the condition of the mouth. For dogs, cats and other pets alike, dental hygiene is vital to good health. Besides the standard pet services that you would expect from a veterinarian, we pay special attention to the oral condition and dental hygiene of your pet.
As a pet owner, you might notice bad breath, but plaque build-up or tartar on the teeth may not be as obvious. However, these are conditions that can lead to more serious periodontal disease or inflammation of the gums. By taking regular care of the teeth and gums, extractions or periodontal disease are less likely to be necessary. If your pet is suffering from a broken tooth or other dental problem, an infection could set in that would make it painful to eat. If your pet does not eat, it could begin to experience weight and energy issues.
