Our pets’ world revolves around their mouths, and that makes dental care vital to their overall health and longevity. The fact is, most pets over three already have some signs of periodontal disease.
Pet owners may notice terrible doggy breath, a pet that has trouble eating, or obviously feels unwell. At that point, a lot of teeth and gum damage has probably already occurred, requiring extensive cleaning, and extractions to fix. If the periodontal disease is advanced, bacteria may have already spread to internal organs, causing serious illness and perhaps even shortening the life of your pet.
The way to avoid all this is with regular dental cleanings. At Hale Ola Pet Hospital, we offer comprehensive dental services for pets, including cleaning. Our dental procedures are accompanied by complete physicals, lab work, X-rays, and anesthesia to ensure the best outcome for your pet. We recommend annual dental cleanings and will be happy to discuss how to brush your pet’s teeth with you, which can reduce the need for expensive extractions and more serious dental work down the line.
