Why Dental Care is So Important for Pets

A clean, healthy mouth stands as a cornerstone of overall health in the realm of pet wellness. Dental disease can lead to unpleasant health changes, from painful gums and bad breath to infection of the major organs. In other words, dental disease starts in the mouth but has the potential to affect other parts of the body. At Four Paws Veterinary Clinic, we emphasize preventative measures through cat and dog teeth cleaning appointments at our hospital, and yearly wellness exams to check the mouth and look for telltale signs of infection.

About Our Pet Dental Care Services

We take pride in offering dental care services using the latest dental technology. Our services include:

  • Tooth Extractions: Our team can perform tooth extractions if needed. We take special care to make the process as comfortable and stress-free as possible for your pet.

Identifying Dental Disease in Pets

Being proactive about your pet’s dental health means recognizing the signs of dental disease:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Eating difficulties or changes
  • Redness, swelling, or bleeding gums
  • Visible tartar, along with loose or missing teeth
