Dental Health: Important for Us as Well as Our Pets

Your pet’s sour breath may indicate a serious health problem. Poor dental health may lead to pain for your pet and dangerous illnesses such as heart, lung, and kidney disease. Prevention of dental disease is vital to your pet’s well-being.

Dental Screening

Since symptoms of pain and periodontal disease can be difficult for a pet owner to detect, routine dental examinations are crucial to treating illness or other health issues before they become serious. During visits at Kings Trail Animal Hospital, every dog and cat receives a comprehensive dental examination. Based on the results of the examination, we will recommend further care and treatment if we diagnose any problems.

Dental Procedures

At Kings Trail Animal Hospital, we provide effective, comprehensive dental treatment in a caring environment. Dental services that we provide include:

  • Dental exams—We inspect your pet’s gum line for soft spots, signs of decay, as well as other signs of illness.
  • Dental Cleaning—Dental cleaning occurs under general anesthesia. Tartar and plaque are removed above and below the gum line and each tooth is polished.
  • Dental x-rays—During dental procedures, we may take detailed digital x-rays to ensure that the tooth roots and jaw bone are healthy.

At Kings Trail Animal Hospital, we take care to maintain your pet’s wellness by monitoring their dental health during each visit. We proactively treat dental conditions. We are dedicated to keeping your pet healthy and happy.

Please contact us to learn more about our dental services or make an appointment today.
