Dental Cleaning

Why should you get your pet’s teeth cleaned?

1. A pet with healthy teeth equals a pet with better breath!
2. Retained baby teeth can cause problems in pets too!  Full grown dogs have 42 teeth and full grown cats have 30 teeth.  Before their adult teeth grow in, their baby teeth have to fall out.  Sometimes, when all of the baby teeth don’t want to come out, problems like gum irritation and tartar buildup can develop.
3. Caring for your pet’s teeth can prevent other health problems, saving you tons of money over the long term!
4. You need regular dental care and you brush your teeth everyday – why wouldn’t your pets?  Your veterinarian can help you learn to brush your pet’s teeth.
5. Did you know that 4 out of 5 dogs over the age of 3 years have some sort of periodontal disease?  It can be caused by the buildup of plaque, so it’s important to go in for regular dental checkups and cleanings.
6. Pets that don’t get dental care can lose their teeth.  This can be terribly painful and cause serious health problems.  Dental disease can lead to problems with your pet’s heart and other organs.
7. Your pets are very good at hiding pain – you might never know that your pet has a serious dental problem until it’s very advanced.  This is yet another reason it’s important to take your pet in for regular dental checkups.
8. Teeth wear out!  Your pets are tough on their teeth.
