Is stinky breath coming between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, bad breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your furry friend could use a visit to the dentist.
Without proper care, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and lead to a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
Fortunately, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Blue Cross Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in dogs and cats include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is showing any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an appointment. We’ll quickly identify and address the problem, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you things you can do at home to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free in between visits.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Blue Cross Animal Hospital can help get you there!
