Pet Dental Care Extends Life & Protects Health
Does your dog or cat need dental care? 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of dental disease by the age of 3. Peninsula Center Pet Hospital provides basic preventive dental care to protect your pet from painful disease and create the opportunity for a longer, healthier life.
Dental Disease in Pets
Bad breath, broken teeth, bleeding or inflamed gums, or a change in eating habits are strong indicators of dental disease. As these diseases advance, infection can enter the blood stream and cause organ disease. Preventive dental care and basic treatments for diseased teeth and gums may extend and improve the life of your pet.
Preventive Teeth Cleaning & Dental Care
Regular dental exams and teeth cleaning can prevent many of the diseases that shorten pets’ lives. At each wellness visit, we perform an oral exam to determine each patient’s specific dental needs. We then create a personalized plan to address the oral and dental health of your pet, including exams, gentle teeth cleaning, and home care techniques.
After dental cleaning, we recommend brushing the teeth at home and a proper nutritional program, designed to maintain the teeth and gums and to prevent plaque and tartar buildup. Our hospital offers gentle pet dentistry services, including:
- Routine exams
- Teeth cleaning
- Basic oral surgery
All dental care and treatments are designed to meet your pet’s specific needs, based on age, breed, size, and overall condition. Contact our hospital to discuss your pet’s dental care.
