Dental health disease affects most of the pet population being affected. As much as 90% of pets have dental disease. What does that mean for your pet? That means pet’s can gave swollen gums, bleeding gums, loose teeth, infection and pain. There is lots we can do as pet owners to prevent this problem from our affecting our pet’s such as;
- Teeth brushing; this has to be done daily or
a tminimum every other day or it is not effective.
- Dental diets are GREAT!!! As simple as feeding your pet can act as a toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash all in one.
- Water Additives like Healthymouth are very effective and added to your pet’s daily water supply. Perfect option for pet’s with food allergies or specific diet needs.
- Treats like TartarShield, Greenies, CET Chews are just some of the products we recommend. When choosing a dental treat look for the VOHC seal of approval on the bag. This means the veterinary oral health council knows it works.
You may have recently learned your pet needs a dental procedure. The thought of it has you worried as veterinary dentistry requires anesthesia and often results in a pet having several teeth extracted. We want you to have peace of mind knowing our veterinarians Dr. Carol Ross, Dr. Jeremy Ross, and Dr. Karly Lanz have taken several post-graduate training courses in dentistry and offer the highest level of dentistry care. Prairie Animal Health Centre has digital dental radiology as well as our Platinum dental package includes pre-anesthesia blood work to help identify if any health problems affecting the anesthesia are present.
