Is bad breath making it hard to get close to your pet?
Despite what you may have heard, foul breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper 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 pet’s life.
The good news is, with support from the Armitage Animal Clinic team, this can all be prevented.
Our professional dentistry services include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral problems.
Some of the signs of dental disease in pets 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 companion is showing any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. Each comprehensive oral health assessment includes digital dental x-rays to facilitate full mouth radiographs for early identification of disease.
We’ll also demonstrate how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Armitage Animal Clinic can help get you there!
