Pet Dentistry in Boothwyn
Dental Care Is Essential Care for Your Pet
At Conchester Animal Hospital, we love to see your pet’s smile! Keep your pets happy and healthy with regular dental care. It’s easy for pet parents to forget about dental care for their pets, but our Boothwyn pet dentistry team will help you keep your pet’s oral health in check. During your pet’s routine wellness exams, one of our veterinarians will check your pet’s mouth as part of the physical exam. If we determine that your pet needs advanced dental care, we’ll help you understand your options. We offer a full suite of dental services onsite at Conchester Animal Hospital in Boothwyn, PA.
Understanding Pet Dental Disease
Like humans, pets can develop plaque on their teeth. Also, like humans, if your pet’s teeth are not regularly brushed, the plaque can begin to build up and cause problems in your pet’s mouth. This is called periodontal disease. It is the most common disease among cats and dogs.
Periodontal disease can be identified by the following symptoms:
- Bad or smelly breath
- Blood in your pet’s saliva or water dish
- Difficulty eating or loss of appetite
- Excessive drooling
- Loose or missing teeth
If you notice any combination of these symptoms, bring your pet in to see our Boothwyn veterinary team as soon as possible! We’ll be able to help fix your pet’s smile.
In the early stages of periodontal disease, brushing your pet’s teeth or giving them especially toys or treats can help dislodge plaque from their teeth. However, as the disease progresses, the plaque can move below the gumline and begin to cause infections or pain. The only way to remove plaque at this stage is through a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia.
Importance of Veterinary Dental Care
Dental care is crucial for your pet's overall health and well-being. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can prevent periodontal disease, which can lead to pain, tooth loss, and systemic infections. Maintaining good oral hygiene also ensures fresh breath and contributes to your pet's comfort and longevity.
