Dentistry

Do you shy away when your pet leans in to give you a wet, slobbery kiss? Do you get the urge to reach for a breath mint every time your companion gets close? If you answered yes to either of these questions, please read on.

Bad breath is just one sign that your pet may be suffering from a dental problem. Other signs include yellow, missing or broken teeth, gums that are inflamed or bleeding and difficulty chewing. If not properly cared for, small dental problems like plaque and tartar buildup can eventually develop into periodontal disease, a much more serious and sometimes even life threatening medical condition.

The good news is, you can prevent all of this by making a commitment to ongoing dental care – both professional and at home. Pet Med Clinic offers all of the professional pet dentistry services you need to keep your pet smiling pretty for life. Our hospital is outfitted with modern dental equipment and our team is experienced in both preventative care and the advanced treatment of existing oral health problems.

We recommend bringing your companion in for a dental exam and cleaning at least once per year. This allows us to keep plaque and tartar at bay, and identify the signs of potential concerns before they can develop into a serious problem. We would also advise you to brush your pet’s teeth at home as often as possible to help maintain those clean teeth and healthy gums. If you need guidance, just ask! Our knowledgeable staff would be more than happy to provide a demonstration or offer advice and recommendations as needed.

When you make dental care a priority for your pet, you give them the best chance at enjoying a long, healthy life. Best of all, you’ll never have to worry about getting up close and personal with your four-legged friend again!
