Maintain Your Pet's Dental Health with our Wichita Falls Veterinarian

Dog receiving teeth cleaning from veterinarian  in Wichita Falls

Just like humans, maintaining good dental health is essential for your pet. Without routine dog teeth cleaning and cat teeth cleaning, your pet can suffer from a variety of dental diseases and oral health problems.

Benefits of Pet Dental Cleanings

Keeping your pet’s teeth and gums clean with pet dental cleanings from your Wichita Falls veterinarian is essential in maintaining your pet’s oral health. Along with causing pain and interfering with eating, dental disease can lead to a range of other health problems, including heart disease. Bacteria from your pet’s mouth can travel to their liver, kidneys, and heart, which may potentially lead to severe illnesses or possibly even death. Regular dental cleanings will help to protect their teeth and gums from periodontal disease as well as other more serious health problems.

Signs of Dental Disease

If you notice any of the following signs and symptoms, it may be an indication of dental disease, so you should take your pet to your Wichita Falls veterinarian for an examination and dog teeth cleaning or cat teeth cleaning.

  • Noticeably bad breath
  • Red, inflamed gums
  • Yellow or brown teeth
  • Loose or missing teeth

Preventing Dental Disease

To prevent dental disease in pets, it is important to brush their teeth regularly with toothpaste that is made specifically for pets and a soft toothbrush. Cats and dogs have different dental care needs, so it’s important to talk with your veterinarian for a recommendation of the best products for your pet.  Also, make sure to visit your Wichita Falls veterinarian regularly for dental exams and cleanings.
