Pet Dentistry Services in Lawrenceburg
Put Some Teeth into Your Pet’s Health Care
When many people think of pet health care and veterinary clinics, they think of vaccinations and basic care services. Pet dental care is one of the most commonly overlooked areas of pet care and also happens to be one of the most important factors in animal health. By the time they are only two years old, nearly 80% of cats and dogs have periodontal disease. Lawrenceburg Veterinarian Clinic is here to make sure your pet isn’t one of them. We offer quality pet dentistry services in Lawrenceburg and the surrounding Tri-State Area.
Dental disease affects much more than just breath. It can lead to more serious health problems, such as liver, kidney, and heart disease. Though we can treat dental disease, we recommend our pet parents be proactive in preventing it all together with routine dental visits to our clinic.
The Importance of Routine Dental Check-Ups
Can you imagine what would happen if you went days, weeks, or months without brushing your teeth? The same could happen to your pet without a proper dental routine. Bacteria and plaque in your pet's mouth can harden into tartar, build up on teeth, and get trapped between the teeth and gums. Only a routine brushing schedule can help prevent this.
Not brushing your pet’s teeth could lead to:
- Loss of gums
- Loss of teeth
- Other health complications
Simply put, dental care is crucial. Poor dental care could potentially shorten your pet’s lifespan by 20%.
Signs Your Pet May Have Dental Problems
There are numerous signs that your furry friend needs to have their teeth checked. Bad breath is one of the biggest indicators of potential issues. A few others include:
- Disinterest in eating
- Loose teeth
- Pain when touched
- Inflamed or red gums
Good Oral Hygiene Goes a Long Way
The American Animal Hospital Association recently devised new guidelines for veterinarians in order to highlight the need for more professional oral hygiene care for pets. The organization stressed the necessity of going beyond the traditional "scraping the surface" of routine dental cleanings, known as "prophies." Veterinarians are encouraged to teach owners the importance of good oral hygiene when puppies and kittens are only a few months old in order to begin a lifetime of healthy benefits that go far beyond sweet smelling kisses.
Healthy Mouth, Healthy Pet
Make sure your pet lives a long, happy, and healthy life and bring them into our clinic for routine dental exams. Don’t ignore your pet’s teeth. We treat your pets like the valued family members that they are and look forward to seeing you soon!
