Pet Dental Care

Pet dental care

We’ll have your pet’s teeth look like new.

 

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken, or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed, or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team and we’ll be happy to help.

We are proud that we have the most up-to-date equipment to treat dental disease, including digital dental x-rays. This allows us to detect if there is any disease beneath the gum line that we would not be able to see otherwise. We are often able to see undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more thanks to dental radiographs.

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease.
In fact, most pet parents are not aware their pet is dealing with dental issues. Every examination at Country Squire Animal Hospital includes an oral examination to assess the teeth and gums for dental disease. We are equipped to perform dental anesthetic cleanings and digital dental x-rays to assess for hidden tooth root disease. We chart all teeth evaluating for any periodontal pockets, increased mobility, and gum recession.
