Regular professional pet dental care is important for your pet.
Do you turn away when your pet sneaks in for kiss because their breath leaves much to be desired? Bad breath is a sign that your pet needs a dental screening. Here at Animal Ark of Elkin, pet dental care is one of the veterinary services we offer that is more important than you might think. Dental problems are very common in dogs, cats, rabbits, and guinea pigs.
Keeping your pet’s mouth healthy and clean sets the stage to prevent gingivitis, periodontal disease, and infections in the mouth. If left untreated, dental disease can lead to much larger problems in the body. Our dental cleanings are safely performed while your pet is under anesthesia. Full-mouth dental x-rays, ultrasonic cleaning, polishing and fluoride treatments are standard pet dental care services provided by our team of passionate professionals.
We recommend that a dental screening be done when your pet is being seen for their routine annual exam. We can then alert you to any problems or provide advice and guidance about dental care at home. We understand that pets often react to teeth cleaning with less than enthusiasm, and if it just isn’t something you can do for them, our pet dental care services are the solution. However, keep in mind that even great dental care at home isn’t a substitute for professional care. Just like you go to a dentist for cleanings, your pet can benefit from that, as well.
