Your pet’s mouth can say a lot about his or her health. You may think that bad breath, drooling, and the occasional lost tooth are all just part of pet ownership, but these conditions can be symptoms of larger issues as well. Poor oral hygiene not only affects your pet’s mouth, but can also lead to more serious health issues such as heart, lung, and kidney disease. And that’s nothing to smile about.
All this gets even more serious when you consider how hard it is to notice oral pain in pets. Behavior that we associate with other issues may be caused by a dental problem in your dog or cat’s mouth.
Just as keeping current on your pet’s annual exams and vaccinations is key to his or her health, so is scheduling routine dental cleanings and exams. At Haven Lake Animal Hospital, we believe that your pet’s dental health is an integral component of overall wellness and are committed to providing the services your pet needs to keep a smile on his or her face. In fact, it may surprise you to learn that the most common disease in household pets is periodontal disease.
