Pet Dental: Check Ups and Cleaning

dental

Pet Dental? Just like you, your pet can suffer from gum disease, tooth loss, and tooth pain. And just like you, regular brushing and oral cleanings help keep your pet’s teeth strong and healthy.

“Dental disease is one of the most common preventable illnesses in pets,” Ohio veterinarian Vanessa Douglas tells WebMD, “yet many people never even look in their pet’s mouths.”

It’s estimated 80% of dogs and 70% cats show signs of dental disease by age three, leading to abscesses, loose teeth, and chronic pain. In addition to regular dental cleanings by us, periodontal disease can be avoided by proper dental care by owners. Some pets may be more susceptible than others. Consult us at Grand Avenue Animal Hospital for a good source of information about brushing techniques, oral rinses, and dental treats.

Welcome Spring

Welcome Spring!  Though we can’t complain about our milder winter.  Thank you to all who participated in the drawing for a free pet dental cleaning during Pet Dental Month in February.   If you have been delaying having you pets annual exam or any problems you’ve noticed checked by the weather, now is the time to schedule as the weather improves but the busy summer months haven’t started.  Increased urination, water intake, weight loss, decreased appetite, coughing,  breathing problems and growths on your pet are all things that should be checked out.
