Dental Health Matters

SPECIAL OFFER

Dental Health Month is here!

Do you brush your pet’s teeth at home? If you answered never, you aren’t alone. Most pets develop the early stages of periodontal disease by three years of age, and keeping their pearly whites healthy is often an uphill battle for pet owners. This is why it’s important to provide at-home dental care as well as annual dental cleanings with the team at Chathams Small Animal Hospital.

Did you know your pet accumulates plaque and develops dental calculus 5 times faster than people?  Most dogs and cats show signs of gingival disease and periodontal disease which causes pain and his or her bloodstream is showered with bacteria from the mouth – potentially causing problems with the heart, kidney, and liver.  Did you know that by following a home dental routine, however, you can make a dramatic difference in helping your pet live a longer, healthier life?  It can be as simple as keeping your pet’s teeth brushed on a daily basis, adding a supplement to his or her diet, and visiting us each year for regular check-ups.

We want your pet to live a long, healthy life, and we understand that maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that. Your pet’s health is essential to us, so let us help you with this commitment.

How will I know if my pet needs a dental cleaning?

Exceptionally bad breath, brownish plaque at the base of the teeth, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite can all be signs that a pet’s teeth require attention.

What can I expect during a dental cleaning?

Routine dental cleanings and a home dental care regime have the potential to add years of vigor to your pet’s life. A dental exam and cleaning are performed under general anesthesia for a safe and thorough procedure. Your pet’s teeth are cleaned of plaque and calculus, and the tooth enamel is polished, followed by a fluoride treatment to further protect the teeth and strengthen enamel.
