Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. Exceptionally bad breath, brownish plaque at the base of the teeth, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite can all be signs that your furbaby’s teeth require attention.
The average cat or dog needs a scale and polish every 18 months! Some even need it every year! We perform dental scaling and polishing on a routine basis. If necessary, we also perform tooth extractions. Because a full general anaesthetic is involved with dentals, we perform pre-anaesthetic blood tests to ensure your furbaby is healthy enough for surgery. After the procedure, we’ll provide you with a post-op plan on how to take care of your furbaby’s oral health moving forward.
Dental disease can be prevented by being diligent about your furbaby’s oral health. In addition to wellness exams and routine dental cleanings at My Vet Animal Hospital, home care is so important. Come talk to us! We’ll talk you through the best dental home care you can manage at home. We’ll even show you how to brush teeth!
