Is bad breath coming between you and your pet?
Despite what you may have been told, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners must simply learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without adequate care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause several other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
Fortunately, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Benson Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is showing any of these signs, it’s time to book a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it promptly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy plenty of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Benson Animal Hospital can help get you there!
