Expert Dental Care for Sacramento Pets
Just as humans need to brush and floss their teeth to prevent cavities and other issues, your pets need similar care. Whether you own a dog, cat or other pet, good dental hygiene is necessary to keep them healthy. To ensure the ongoing care of their teeth, you should bring your pets to the compassionate veterinary dentist at Northgate Pet Hospital in Sacramento. Our vet offers pet dental care that encompasses examinations, cleanings and other treatments necessary for your dog or cat’s oral health. Pet owners don’t always understand the value of routine dental examinations. By bringing your puppy or kitten in for routine dental examinations, we can make certain that they are not having issues with gingivitis, fractured teeth or other common issues. We can also bundle the oral health checkup with your regularly scheduled pet exam, making it easier to ensure comprehensive care without the scheduling difficulties.
Symptoms of Oral Health Problems
If you aren’t regularly cleaning your pet’s teeth, they can have many issues similar to humans. The most prevalent of the problems is plaque. An excess of plaque will eventually lead to tartar, causing gingivitis or gum disease. If your pet seems to be having issues eating, has bad breath or receding gums it may be suffering from gingivitis. If it is not treated promptly, it can lead to other issues throughout your pet’s body. If you notice any of these symptoms, bring your pet in for an examination as quickly as possible.
