Signs of Pet Dental Disease
It is sometimes difficult to know when your pet requires veterinary attention, especially when it comes to dental disease. The following are the most common dental problems in pets:
Preventative Care at Home
Diet is an important factor in dental health. Ask us about the appropriate foods for your pet to enhance dental health and slow the formation of plaque and tartar.
Special toys satisfy the natural desire to chew while promoting strong teeth and gums. Chewing massages gums and keeps teeth clean by scraping away soft tartar. In addition, chew toys can be instrumental in reducing stress and preventing boredom in your pet.
We also offer OraVet chews with a prescription.
"Plaque and calculus are very common problems in dogs.
Plaque forms when bacteria attach to teeth, and over time,
this plaque hardens to form calculus (tartar). The accumulation
of plaque and calculus can lead to bad breath and other problems.
The dual-action approach of OraVet Chews doesn’t just clean
teeth and freshen breath. It creates a barrier to help protect
against plaque, calculus, and bad breath.
OraVet DENTAL HYGIENE CHEWS CONTAIN
A SPECIAL INGREDIENT, DELMOPINOL.
Delmopinol works to form a preventive barrier that blocks bacteria,
and the future formation of plaque and calculus (tartar) that builds
up over time.
OraVet Chews are the first and only dental hygiene product for dogs
that contain delmopinol."
Regular pet dental care prolongs life and enhances the overall health of your pet. Problems of the teeth, gums, and mouth spread quickly to significant organs, causing infections and disease. In addition, a pet in pain from an infected or broken tooth may exhibit behavioral problems and an impaired immune system.
Pet dental care at Belleview Veterinary Hospital is simple: regular oral exams, periodic teeth cleaning by your veterinarian, and a home maintenance program. Aside from our preventive dental care program, we offer basic veterinary dentistry such as tooth extractions. Ask about our preventive dental care packages for your pet.
