The "Tooth" About Pet Dental Care


Benefits of Professional Animal Dentistry

Did you know that caring for your pets' teeth and gums can actually help them live longer, happier lives? Dental disease is a very common issue for both dogs and cats and is easily preventable. However, most animal owners do not realize that regular dental care is critical in maintaining the overall health of a family pet.

If disease in the teeth or gums goes unnoticed for too long, it can actually lead to serious infections throughout your pet's entire body. These infections can become life threatening, especially in older animals. It is very important that pet owners take steps to prevent this unnecessary suffering and illness by utilizing the professional dental cleaning services at our Durham veterinary clinic.

The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) recommends that both dogs and cats receive a professional dental cleaning at a veterinary clinic one time every year. During the professional cleaning, a veterinarian will remove the plaque buildup on your pet's teeth and help your animal avoid the tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to serious health problems.
