Keeping your pet’s teeth clean and healthy is one of the most important steps you can take when it comes to preventive care. Periodontal disease is extremely common, and many pet owners are unaware that it is also easily preventable.
Plaque and tartar that build-up on your pet’s teeth can lead to bacterial infections, and gingivitis, which can progress to more advanced forms of periodontal disease. Without proper care, there is risk of tooth loss and endangering other vital organs such as the heart, kidneys, and liver. Establishing a regular dental routine, including professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar, is essential. Call us today to schedule your appointment!
Good dental care for your pet does not end after he or she leaves our hospital. Much like you care for your own teeth, we strongly encourage you to brush your pet’s teeth each day. A good time to remember to brush is at meal time.
Dental care for your pet is one of the cornerstones of our wellness program. Please discuss your pet’s dental needs and concerns at your next visit to Montrose Animal Hospital and Pet Hotel.
