Pet Dental Care: Why It’s Important

Pet Dental Care : Why It’s Important


Healthy Teeth for Happy Pets

Regular brushing of your pet’s teeth is the best way to prevent stinky breath, calculus formation and dental disease. But if you’re like most pawrents, you know brushing your pet’s teeth isn’t always easy to do at home. A professional pet dental cleaning is recommended every 6-12 months depending on the condition of your pet’s teeth.

If your pet has developed bad breath, this could signify gingivitis or gum disease. These conditions when severe, not only cause deterioration of the gums, teeth and bone, but could also affect the heart, liver, kidneys and lungs.

Traveling Tails Veterinary Clinic performs dental procedures on pets comfortably under sedation; allowing us to safely treat issues below the gum line and make tooth extractions if necessary. 

You can help ensure your pet live a longer and healthier life. Call (210) 495-8245 to schedule a consultation.
