Dental health is a good indicator of overall health, and good dental health can help your pet avoid secondary conditions like heart and kidney diseases. Quality dental care can even add years to your pet’s life.
Veterinary Dentistry for Total Health
A thorough dental exam is included in your pet’s regular check-up but since periodontal disease and other problems are so common we might also recommend:
- Dental cleanings, including scaling and polishing
- Digital dental x-rays
- Surgical extractions and repairs
- Fluoride treatment
- Pain control
- Dental-specific diet recommendations
The team at Ohana Animal Hospital encourages you to keep your pet’s pearly whites at their best by practicing good pet dental care at home. This includes feeding your pet a nutritious diet and brushing your furry pal’s teeth at least once a week to remove the debris and bacteria that cause tartar and plaque. (Don’t forget to only use the toothpastes that are formulated for your type of pet.)
Never brushed your pet’s teeth? Don’t worry. We can help you learn how to tackle the task at your pet’s wellness appointment.
