Have you noticed your pet has bad breath? Just like their human counterparts, animals need regular brushings and cleanings as well. Harmful bacteria can collect in your pet’s mouth and can lead to plaque and tartar buildup that can result in not only bad breath, but damaged teeth and gums and even kidney and heart disease.
Like many health issues, preventative care is much less expensive than treatment when the illness has progressed beyond traditional methods of care. Our doctors like to start a healthy habit of dental care early on in the life of your pet. Dental care begins with an examination of the mouth, as well as cleaning and polishing of the teeth, much as the same for humans at the dentist. Dental care also extends to suggestions for healthy snacks, special diets and cleaning methods at home. Call Phenix Animal Hospital today to schedule your pet’s dental checkup!
