Pet Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease is also a source of pain. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pets’ health. There are many ways that dog and cat owners can help their veterinarian provide a healthy mouth for their pet. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Renton Veterinary Hospital, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home. Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, and minor oral surgery.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease.
