Pet Dental Care

Pet dental health is very important for your animal companions. Fortunately, you can visit Sheehy Animal Hospital for all of your pet’s dental needs.


Pet Oral Health: Why It Is Important

Humans need to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes each time. Even with all of this brushing, you may still end up with cavities, gum disease, and other issues. That said, cats, dogs, and other pets can still suffer from these common dental issues:

  • Cavities
  • Gum disease
  • Bad breath
  • Infections
  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Sensitive teeth

If your pet seems to have trouble eating or is in pain when you touch his or her mouth, a trip to a veterinarian may be in order. Regular pet checkups are also important as your veterinarian can look to see if there are any noticeable problems.

Quick and immediate treatment is best. Minor dental issues can quickly develop into a full-blown dental crisis without proper and prompt treatment. Visiting a vet now, may save you money and prevent your pet’s pain in the future.

As for treatment, the correct pet dental routine depends on your pet. A diet change may be in order. Antibiotics are often needed to control an infection. Surgery and other invasive procedures may be needed for severe dental issues. You may need to brush your pet’s teeth on a regular basis or take your pet to the vet for a dental cleaning. A vet will typically need to check your cat, dog, or other pet for dental issues before prescribing treatment.
