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. 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 Southside Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive dental services for pets, including cleaning and oral surgery.
