PROPER DENTAL CARE IS IMPORTANT FOR YOUR PET’S OVERALL HEALTH
Russellville Animal Clinic offers pet dental evaluation and cleaning services because we know that proper dental care is important to your pet’s health. Dental disease can lead to other serious health problems, such as heart and kidney disease. Your pet’s wellness visit will include a dental checkup, and we will look for common signs of dental disease, such as:
- Tartar buildup
- Gum health—gingivitis or gingival erosion
- Loose teeth
- Excessive drooling
VETERINARY DENTAL CLEANING SERVICES
If a dental cleaning is recommended based on the dental evaluation, this one-day service can be performed. Dental cleanings are performed under anesthesia to maximize your pet’s comfort. We perform a series of safety checks including an examination and blood work before anesthesia is administered. Great care is taken to ensure your pet’s safety before, during, and after the cleaning is performed.
AT-HOME PET DENTISTRY TIPS
In addition, there are many things you can do at home to maximize your pet’s dental health. We are pleased to share, discuss, and demonstrate methods to keep your dog and cat’s teeth clean between veterinary visits. A few examples include regular brushing and specialized dental treats. We want your pet’s dental health to be easy and enjoyable for you and your pet. Regular brushing of your pet’s teeth between veterinary dentistry visits provides the best possible protection for your pet and minimizes dental surgery.
