Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential for your pet's health. Oral infections can go undetected for a long time, which can lead to periodontal disease or gingivitis, and eventually can cause larger systematic problems such as damage to the kidneys, liver and heart.
Some symptoms include:
- Bad breath
- Red and/or swollen gums
- Lose or missing teeth
- Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
Our hospital is fully equipted to deal with your pet's periodontal care. Dr. Meihofer and Dr. Heartsfield regularly perform oral exams, which will give you a better understanding of your pet's oral condition, and if needed we are happy to schedule your pet for an out patient dental procedure.
