Your pet’s oral health is more important than you think.
Why is this so important? Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. In fact, most pet parents are not aware that their pet is dealing with dental issues. Bad breath; plaque build-up; excessive drooling; sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing; and decreased appetite are signs that your pet’s teeth may require veterinary attention.
Dental disease can lead to major health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys due to the bacteria in the mouth traveling in the bloodstream. Unfortunately, other than bad breath, sometimes there are few signs of the disease process evident. However, the alarming fact is that 85% of all pets have dental disease by the time they are three years of age.
The good news is that there are many different ways to improve your pet’s dental health such as home brushing, dental chews, and the most important being regular oral exams with your veterinarian.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through regular professional cleanings. At Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc., we perform thorough cleanings that include an extensive oral examination, dental radiographs to diagnose any underlying disease under the gums, scaling, and polishing.
We’re also here to go over at-home dental care tips so that your efforts at home and annual dental care at Veterinary Center of Parker, Inc. can lead to a long life of healthy oral care for your pet.
