Oral hygiene for your pet is more crucial than you would realise.
Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80%
of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. In fact, most pet parents are not aware that their pet is dealing with dental issues. Bad breath; plaque build-up; excessive drooling; sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing; and decreased appetite are signs that your pet’s teeth may require veterinary attention.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through regular professional cleanings. At Payson Family Pet Hospital, we perform thorough cleanings that include an extensive oral examination, dental radiographs to diagnose any underlying disease under the gums, scaling, and polishing. We’re also here to go over at-home dental care tips so that your efforts at home and annual dental care at Payson Family Pet Hospital, can lead to a long life of healthy oral care for your pet.
