Dental health is critical to the well-being of your pets. Periodontal disease is one of the most common ailments that we diagnose in our patients. Unfortunately, it is often unnoticed by a pet’s owner until the condition is severe. Tartar on your dog or cat’s teeth will often lead to bad breath, gingivitis, infection and premature tooth loss.
At Maple Springs Veterinary Hospital we stress the importance of dental cleaning procedures when needed. Done under light anesthesia, this involves scaling and polishing the teeth, application of fluoride, antibacterial flushing and sealant, as well as any other procedures needed. We also demonstrate follow-up animal dental hygiene so owners can help reduce future problems. This may involve brushing and rinsing techniques with veterinary dental products, as well as the use of CET Dental Treats for cats and dogs.
