Your pet’s teeth are a great concern when your pet is not eating, due to poor pet dental hygiene. Dogs, cats, and many animals can use proper pet dental care to prevent cavities and dental disease. We at Oxford Animal Hospital located in The Villages, Fl, offer a dog teeth cleaning to help protect against tooth pain, bad breath, weakened gums, tooth infection, and more service for pets. Our veterinarian is here to help.
Dog Teeth Cleaning
Taking your dog to the veterinarian for dog teeth cleaning can save your dog from tooth pain, gum disease, and tooth infections. Dogs eat a variety of foods and other things when you are not around. Unless you feed your dog some special type of dog food, you need to keep your dog's teeth clean. After all, a clean mouth is a healthy mouth.
When pets experience tooth pain, they usually act in a way that is not normal. Pain can cause your pet not to eat, loss of appetite, weight loss, discomfort while eating, pus or excessive drooling while eating. Broken or loose teeth, and red, swollen, and inflamed gums may be a sign mean you need to take your pet to our veterinarian right away.
Bad breath can be an indication that your dog has oral issues that need to be addressed. Your dog could have tooth decay, gum infections, or other serious oral health problems. You should talk to our vet about how to properly care for your pet's teeth and gums.
A serious gum disease that is not found early, can result in oral complications for your pet. Gum diseases, including periodontal disease, which is painful and uncomfortable, can be prevented with proper pet dental care. Your dog may want to eat but may refuse due to the discomfort of chewing.
A tooth infection in humans is bad enough but that means your pet may also be in pain. Your dog may tilt his head to one side to eat, avoid eating, or may experience trouble eating or chewing his food due to a tooth infection. The infection can be caused by an abscess.
