Why Dental Hygiene is Important For Pets

Even though most pets don't smile, they certainly bring a smile to the face of their owners. Pets come with a lot of responsibility and along with feeding, housing, and providing enough exercise, it is important that they receive regular care from a veterinarian including pet dental care. At Jimmie Davis Animal Hospital in Bossier City, LA, we recognize the importance of pet dental care and offer this service to our furry clients.

Pet Oral Care

When was the last time you looked at your pet's teeth and gums? If you are like most pet owners it was not recently if ever. Imagine if your teeth were never cared for or cleaned, it would not be a good thing. It is not a good thing for your pets either. Some people feel comfortable brushing their pet teeth but some pets are just not comfortable with their owner doing this to them. A veterinary dentist is a good option for any pet owner who is uncomfortable doing this procedure themselves. At Jimmie Davis Highway Animal Hosptial we have an experienced veterinary dentist to provide pet dental care for your cat or dog.

Pet Dental Issues

Some pets will never have issues with their teeth or gums but for others, it is a serious problem. Checking dental health is part of your pet's comprehensive exam. If you notice any problems such as bad breath, broken or discolored teeth, you may want to make an appointment to have it checked out right away. Some of the problems your pet may be having can be caused by misaligned teeth, which while adorable can make their likelihood of dental issues higher. Gum tissues are also very serious as periodontal disease can lead to much more serious conditions of the liver, heart, and kidneys. Pets will need anesthesia for dental work for their safety as well as the safety of the dental veterinarian.
