North County Animal Hospital Offers Pet Dental Care in Jupiter

pet dental care JupiterPet dental care is as important to your pet’s health as it is to your health. Not only does poor dental care lead to bad breath, which is obviously unpleasant, but it can also lead to painful gum disease. Gum disease in turn can cause other serious illnesses, such as heart and kidney disease.

If your dog or cat has bad breath, that’s a very good indication of dental problems, and the sooner this is addressed, the more likely it can be brought under control. Bad breath is caused by bacteria, which causes plaque and tartar buildup. Yellowing teeth, loose or missing teeth, and red, inflamed gums occur as the disease progresses. The use of treats designed to control plaque are helpful, but they are not enough to prevent dental disease altogether.

Pet Dental Care of the Finest Quality

At North County Animal Hospital, we recommend that you allow us to assess your pet’s dental health with a cursory visual exam of teeth and gums to determine if there are issues that need to be addressed. If so, we might recommend a more in-depth analysis requiring sedation, or a thorough dental cleaning above and below the gums. In the event that your pet’s teeth are in good health, we can offer advice on how to keep them that way with good preventative dental care.

Pet dental care, including regular dental check-ups and teeth cleaning, can help prevent decay and other dental problems from developing. Your pet will thank you with fresh breath and a happy disposition. Your pet’s dental health is important to us, as we know it is to you.
