Dental Disease & Your Pet
Periodontal disease is considered the most common disease affecting cats and dogs. This disease is also likely to go undetected without regular medical care. When left untreated, dental or periodontal disease can cause pain, infection, and even loss of teeth. Don’t let your pets suffer!
Symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Unusually bad breath
- Blood in your pet’s saliva or water dish
- Loose or missing teeth
- Difficulty eating
If you notice your pet exhibiting any of the symptoms above, it’s possible they are suffering from some form of periodontal disease. Bring your pet in to see us at Veterinary Medical Center of Spring for an oral exam so that we can get them back on track to good oral health!
Understanding Dental Disease
Periodontal disease stems from a buildup of excess plaque on your pet’s teeth. Plaque is a bacterial film that hardens on the teeth when it dies, creating a film that allows for more plaque to accumulate. Like in humans, regular brushing can dislodge plaque and prevent the development of periodontal disease. However, if the plaque is allowed to harden and build up on your pet’s teeth, it can move below the gums and infect the tissues the hold your pet’s teeth in place. At this point, professional dental cleaning is the only method that will effectively and completely remove plaque from your pet’s teeth.
Dental Cleaning from Veterinary Medical Center of Spring
For pets, dental cleaning is a more involved process than it is for humans. We offer professional dental cleaning services under anesthesia. As an American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) accredited practice, we are fully equipped to monitor your pet under anesthesia in our surgical suite, making sure they are well taken care of while your Spring veterinarian scales and polishes your pet’s teeth.
Once your pet’s teeth are clean again, maintenance is key! Our team can help you learn how to take care of your pet’s teeth at home so you can avoid future dental problems.
