Pet Dentistry

At Family Pet Hospital, we understand the significance of proper dental care for pets. Just like humans, pets can experience dental issues that can lead to discomfort, pain, and even more severe health problems. Our experienced veterinarians are well-trained in pet dentistry and are equipped with the latest tools and techniques to address a wide range of dental concerns.

We offer comprehensive pet dentistry services, including routine dental check-ups, teeth cleaning, and advanced dental procedures. Our skilled veterinarians thoroughly examine your pet’s oral health during dental check-ups, checking for signs of dental disease, decay, or other issues. Regular teeth cleaning can help prevent the buildup of tartar and plaque, which can contribute to gum disease and tooth decay.

Tooth Decay

Tooth decay in pets is usually the result of a build-up of plaque. When the plaque hardens, it turns to tartar and causes gingivitis. In time, gingivitis leads to tooth loss and receding gum. Working with your pet’s dental health will prevent several oral diseases.

Some signs to look for in instances of oral pet diseases are:

  • Bad Breath
  • Drooling More Than Normal
  • Gum Cysts
  • Tumours in the Gums
  • Inflamed Gums
  • Loose, Wobbly Teeth

Promote Your Pet’s Oral Health

In preventing tooth and gum disease in pets, it is essential to practice good dental hygiene. There are specially formulated toothpaste that are enjoyable to your pet’s tastes and numerous chews that prevent plaque formation.
