At East Hills Veterinary Clinic we offer full service dental care. From Dental x-ray, to scaling, polishing, and tooth
extractions, we offer everything to keep your pet’s mouth healthy!
Have you looked inside of your pet’s mouth lately? It seems like an odd thing to do, but it’s a huge step towards proper pet healthcare.
Without regular cleaning, both at home and professionally, bacteria and plaque can build up on the teeth and gums causing bad breath, and gingivitis. If that isn’t bad enough, those bacteria can get into your pet’s bloodstream and cause damage to the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. The good news is that the oral diseases are almost entirely preventable, and many are treatable.
With dental disease, just like with any healthcare issue, the best defense is a good offense. Imagine what might happen if you hadn’t seen a dentist until you were 20! Start by having your pet’s teeth and gums examined and professionally cleaned.
A Dental Exam and Cleaning should be a part of your pet’s regular veterinary visits.
In Between Cleanings:
○ Brush your pet’s teeth
○ Stick with toothpastes made especially for pets
○ Seek out special dietary aids for pet’s teeth
○ Call us immediately if you notice oral pain or tooth loss
