Is stinky breath driving a wedge between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, bad breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it probably means your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, an animal’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your best friend’s life.
The good news is, with our support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Dakota Hills Veterinary Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an exam. We’ll diagnose the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your companion’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Dakota Hills Veterinary Clinic can help get you there!
