Is bad breath making it difficult to get close to your furry friend?

Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s likely a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist. 

Without adequate care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the body and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your pet’s life. 

The good news is, with support from the team of Tuscan Ridge Animal Hospital, this can all be prevented.

Our professional dentistry services include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing and complex oral conditions. 

Some of the signs of dental disease in dogs and cats include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food 
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to book a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you techniques for keeping your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round. 

You deserve to enjoy lots of kisses and cuddles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Tuscan Ridge Animal Hospital can help get you there!
