Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s likely a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without appropriate care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and trigger a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your four-legged friend’s life.
The good news is, with the right support, this is entirely preventable.
The professional dentistry services at Ski Town Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in dogs and cats include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is showing any of these signs, it’s time to book a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your pet. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your companion’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your furry friend. The comprehensive dental services at Ski Town Animal Hospital can help get you there!
