When to Seek Dental Care for Your Pet

Pets can’t express discomfort verbally, making it essential for owners to be vigilant about potential dental problems. Keep an eye out for:

  • Persistent Bad Breath: Unpleasant odors may signal underlying dental issues.
  • Tartar Buildup: Yellow or brown deposits on teeth can indicate plaque accumulation.
  • Difficulty Eating: Dental issues may be the culprit if your pet avoids certain foods or struggles chewing.
  • Oral Pain: Increased sensitivity, pawing at the mouth, or reluctance to be touched around the face could suggest discomfort.

Comprehensive Pet Dentistry Services

Our pet dentistry services at Healthy Paws Animal Hospital extend beyond routine cleanings. We offer a comprehensive range of services to ensure your pet’s dental health is optimal:

  1. Prophylactic Dental Examinations: Administered under general anesthesia, these examinations encompass a thorough oral check, dental charting, and digital dental radiographs to identify hidden issues.
  2. Surgical Extractions if Necessary: When tooth removal is required, our skilled veterinary team conducts surgical extractions with precision and care.
  3. Scaling and Polishing: Our advanced equipment removes plaque and tartar through scaling, followed by meticulous polishing for a radiant finish.
