Our pets’ world revolves around their mouths, and that makes dental care vital to their overall health and longevity. The fact is most pets over three already have some signs of periodontal disease.
Pet owners may notice terrible doggy breath, a pet that has trouble eating, or obviously feels unwell. At that point, a lot of teeth and gum damage has probably already occurred, requiring extensive cleaning, extractions, and or oral surgery to fix. If the periodontal disease is advanced, bacteria may have already spread to internal organs, causing serious illness and perhaps even shortening the life of your pet.
The way to avoid all this is with regular dental cleanings. At South Park Animal Hospital, we recommend annual dental cleanings, and we offer full dental services, including exams, cleaning and polishing, digital x-rays, oral surgery and extractions.
