Get Your Pet's Teeth Checked in San Antonio
Dental care is a critical component to ensuring your pet stays healthy. Without proper routines such as brushing your pet’s teeth with the proper toothbrush and toothpaste, giving them dental chews, and getting regular check-ups scheduled with your local vet, your pet can suffer from a variety of dental diseases that can trickle down and impact other parts of their bodies.
Veterinary dentistry includes cleaning, adjustments, filing, extraction, repair and other aspects of your pet’s teeth health and should be performed by a trained veterinarian or board certified veterinary dentist. If your pet has any of the following problems then you should schedule a checkup for them at your local animal vet soon:
- Bad breath
- Broken or loose teeth
- Pain while chewing
- Bleeding around the mouth and gums
- Swelling around the mouth
- Reduced appetite or outright refusal to eat
- Discolored teeth and signs of plaque and tartar
Bacteria builds up in the pet’s mouth from leftover foods and other particles, and can travel through the bloodstream and into the kidneys, liver, and other vital organs where they can cause infection and serious diseases. Staying on top of your pet’s dental hygiene can avoid most of these problems.
