You are a responsible pet owner and you take good care of your pet - but do you always remember to take care of your pet's teeth?
Pets have dental diseases and problems just like people do. Regular dental check-ups at Shore Haven Veterinary Hospital, combined with good dental hygiene at home, can increase your pet's health, vitality, and well-being and help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.
If left untreated, dental disease cannot only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's overall health before symptoms are noticeable. For those reasons, our veterinary team strongly considers dental care an important piece of your dog's or cat's preventive health care program.
Protecting Your Pet's Dental Health
We believe the centerpiece of good dental care is a complete oral exam followed by a thorough cleaning designed to remove plaque and slow its buildup. Your pet's dental appointment includes:
Should we find any issues, such as evidence of gum or tooth erosion, gingivitis, or excessive plaque buildup, we will discuss this with you and offer treatment options for your pet. We are experienced dental practitioners and can offer a variety of dental procedures and oral surgeries.
In Between Cleanings: Dental Care at Home
You can prevent serious dental problems by making sure your pet receives dental exams at the time of each vaccination, again at 6 months of age, and then annually. In between visits to your Shore Haven Veterinary Hospital, check your pet's teeth regularly for signs of problems. Brushing your pet's teeth is the single most important procedure you can do to maintain good oral health. If performed regularly, brushing dramatically decreases the incidence of gingivitis and can increase the interval between teeth cleaning appointments.
