February is Dental Health Month for pets! Healthy teeth and gums are an important part of your pet’s overall wellbeing. Periodontal disease, characterized by infected teeth and gums, can cause sensitivity, pain and even system wide infection in your pet. Good pet dental care starts at home. Home dental care recommendations include daily brushing, enzyme treats and anti-septic rinses.
Pets also benefit from periodic veterinary dental treatment as well. Such treatments are performed under general anesthesia. Teeth are cleaned and evaluated for periodontal disease. Dental x-rays can help the veterinary staff detect tooth root infections and other facets of periodontal disease. Infected or otherwise compromised teeth are extracted, the remaining teeth are polished and treated with fluoride. The end result is a happy pet with a healthy mouth!
Feel free to call for tips on getting started on caring for your pet’s teeth, or schedule an appointment for an oral health assessment with one of our doctors.
