At Stanton Animal Hospital, we find that one of the most neglected aspects of pet health is dental care. Many pet owners are surprised to learn that regular dental screenings and oral hygiene can actually add years to the life of your pet. We offer advanced dentistry services including dental cleaning procedures for dogs and cats, extractions and oral surgeries. To ensure that we provide the best in dental care that veterinary medicine has to offer, we have furnished our facility with state-of-the-art equipment in addition to dental radiological technology that allows us to check for tooth fractures and oral tumors.
The doctors at Stanton Animal Hospital recommend initiating regular dental cleanings and exams when your pets are young to prevent the development of periodontal disease. Routine checkups and cleanings from your veterinarian are key factors in keeping your pet healthy. Brushing your pet’s teeth in between cleanings and supplying them with oral hygiene chews are additional preventive measures.
If you notice your pets illustrating the following symptoms, they may be suffering from periodontal disease and should be evaluated.
- Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
- Bad breath
- Bleeding from the mouth
- Broken or loose teeth
- Gum recession and/or gum swelling
- Pain in or around the mouth
- Pawing at the face or mouth
- Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
- Swelling of the face
- Teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
- Weight loss
