Your pet’s oral care is more important than you think! Just like in humans, the dental health of your pet can have a major impact on their overall well-being. Issues that begin in the mouth can have a profound effect on a few of the major organs of your pet, including the kidneys, liver, and heart. If you notice particularly bad breath, food not being eaten, or over-sensitivity near the mouth, set an appointment to see our doctor.
Veterinary Dentistry that protects your pet’s smile!
Your pet’s oral care is more important than you think. Recent studies have shown that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. Dental disease can lead to infections that can spread through the bloodstream to affect major organs such as your pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart. We recommend annual dental exams to get a baseline of your pet’s oral health. We’re also able to schedule dental cleanings when appropriate.
Unsure if your pet is having dental issues? Symptoms like bad breath, plaque build-up, excessive drooling, sore or bleeding gums when eating or chewing, and decreased appetite are signs that your furbaby’s teeth may require veterinary attention.
In addition to regularly scheduled dental exams, we also offer dental x-rays and dental cleaning appointments. X-rays help us view and then appropriately treat teeth and bone that are hidden from view, as well as what’s going on under the gumline. X-rays can often reveal hidden and painful conditions that are hidden from the naked eye.
During a dental exam, we’ll also discuss home teeth cleaning tips and brushing instruction. Your home care with our dental services is the perfect combination to keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy! As a leading veterinarian in Bozeman, we are proud to protect your pet’s smile.
