When it comes to your own oral health care, chances are, you work hard to maintain a healthy mouth. You wouldn’t go days, weeks or years without brushing your own teeth or visiting the dentist, right? Well, your pet’s dental health is just as important. In fact, if not properly cared for, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria, which can eventually lead to dental disease, a serious condition that can cause problems throughout your pet’s entire body. Fortunately, many dental problems can be managed through at-home care and by bringing your pet to us for regular dental checkups and teeth cleanings.
East Lake Veterinary Hospital offers all of the professional pet dentistry services your pet needs to maintain healthy teeth and gums. We provide complete preventative dental care, including exams, teeth cleanings and polishings, as well as the treatment of existing or advanced dental problems, such as tooth extractions. Whether you’ve been diligent about keeping up with your pet’s oral health, or never gave it a second thought, it’s never too late to start!
Some of the signs that your pet may be suffering from a dental problem include:
If you notice your pet exhibiting any of these signs, contact us to schedule an appointment for a dental exam.
Finally, in addition to the role we play as your pet’s dentist, at East Lake Veterinary Hospital, we also believe that you play an equally important role. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is happy to work with you to teach you ways that you can help your pet maintain good dental health all year long. We’ll show you home brushing techniques, and provide guidance and advice on various treats and chew products that can also help keep plaque and tartar at bay in between vet visits.
Let’s work together to help your pet enjoy a clean, fresh, disease-free mouth for life!
