Is your pet’s smile as healthy as it could be?

Clean teeth and healthy gums can improve your pet’s overall wellbeing. Because our furry friends can’t brush their own teeth, it’s up to us to make sure this important task is taken care of. Regular dental care can help prevent everything from bad breath to periodontal disease, a serious and painful medical condition. Armitage Animal Clinic wants to support you in this initiative by offering both routine preventative care as well as the advanced treatment of existing conditions. It all starts with a simple phone call to us!

Preventative Care

Taking proactive measures to keep your pet’s teeth clean can go a long way toward achieving excellent oral health. Our preventative care services include everything you need to achieve this goal, including exams and cleanings. Our hospital features modern equipment which we use to remove plaque and tartar and protect your companion’s teeth from future buildup. Regular dental exams will also help us to quickly identify the signs of potential oral health problems so we can address them right away.

Advanced Dentistry

If one of our routine examinations reveals the presence of an oral health problem, such as periodontal disease, we can assist with this as well. Our team is highly skilled and experienced in delivering advanced dental care services, Dr. Williams also performs extractions and oral surgery. Even if your pet is getting up in age and you’ve never paid much attention to his or her teeth, it’s never too late!

Some of the signs of pet dental problems include:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Broken or missing teeth
  • Pawing at the face
  • Pain when touched near the mouth

If any of these things are present, it’s time to schedule an appointment for a thorough dental exam. The more quickly we can identify what’s bothering your pet, the better the outcome.

At-Home Care

The final component of your pet’s dental care is the measures you take at home, in between vet visits. This includes regular brushing and may also involve the use of certain pet care products that are designed to support good oral health. Our friendly staff members will provide you with the guidance and education you need to ensure a clean, healthy mouth for your pet year-round. Call today and let’s work together to help your four-legged friend enjoy the beautiful, strong smile he or she deserves.
