The Importance of Proper Dental Care for Your Pet

Finding out that your pet needs dental procedures can be difficult to hear. It might sound like the procedure or recovery could be scary for your pet. Rest assured that the experts at Pet Doctor have your pet’s comfort and safety in mind. Your pet’s oral health is important and we will make sure that the dental procedures your pet receives are done with care and expertise.

Dental cleanings are the beginning of preventative maintenance, but there is more that you can do to ensure your pet has proper dental care. Pay attention to your pet’s teeth for signs of wear and tear or dental disease that requires care from a veterinary dental technician.

Signs that your pet needs immediate professional dental care might be obvious, such as broken teeth, bleeding gums, difficulty eating their regular food or refusal to eat, or hitting their face and mouth with their paws. Other signs will be less obvious, like loose teeth, extra saliva, swollen gums, or weight loss. If your pet also has very bad breath that won’t go away, that’s another sign to seek immediate care.

Additional Dental Care

While dental surgery may be required for your pet, we usually want to try other care maintenance before coming to that option. This includes teaching you how to brush your pet’s teeth at home and helping you decide on additional products that will bring your pet to optimal oral health.

There are different dental chews and toys that assist you in keeping your pet’s teeth healthy, but they’re not all created equal. The experts at Pet Doctor in Chandler, AZ know which products will work best for your pet. There are also additives that can act as a mouthwash for your pet’s water, working on plaque and breaking down germs that give your dog bad breath.

At Your Dental Care Appointment

It’s important to tell your veterinary dental care provider about any concerns you have at the beginning of your appointment. This way they’ll know if there’s something particular they should be looking for. Be sure to answer any questions your veterinarian asks truthfully and thoroughly.
