Pet Dental Care at Putnam


 

When is the last time you brushed your pets teeth or examined their gum health? You likely wouldn’t skip brushing your teeth for days at a time, and you shouldn’t neglect your pet’s dental hygiene either! Dental hygiene for pets is just as important for them as it is for us.

What many pet owners often refer to as “dog breath” may be actually be sign of poor pet dental maintenance. Most pet owners don’t realize is dental disease doesn’t just affect your pet’s mouth; it can lead to more serious health problems including heart, liver, and kidney disease. Studies even suggest that good dental health can add up to five years to the life of your pet.

 

Taking care of your pet’s teeth is an important part of making sure they live a long healthy life. Our animal dentistry services include:

  • Ultrasonic scaling
  • Tooth polishing
  • Dental extractions
  • Minor oral surgery

 

If your pet is beginning to display signs of periodontal disease, we advise you contact your local animal dentist, or  schedule an appointment online here at the Animal Hospital of Putnam for an examination and/or cleaning.
