Does your pet have bad breath? It may be time to make an appointment with your vet for an oral health evaluation.
Just like humans, pets experience a build up of plaque formed from bacteria in the mouth. After 24 to 36 hours plaque calcifies into rock hard tartar which does not come off with a simple brushing. The accumulation of tartar and bacteria can result in painful inflammation of the gums, infection around the tooth roots, bone loss in the jaw bones, recession of the gingiva and tooth loss. Furthermore, the infection in the mouth can enter the blood stream and spread to other vital organs including the heart, kidneys, and lungs.
Schedule your pet’s dental and we will peformed a thorough oral examination of each tooth, ultrasonically scale and polish every tooth, and provide a flouride treatment.
