Your pet's oral health is a big part of their overall health and wellness. Dental problems and gum disease may be early signs of other conditions. They may also cause other health issues such as infections, jaw pain and dysfunction if not treated. That is why we recommend yearly dental check-ups and preventative measures as an important part of good oral health.
Some signs and symptoms to watch for if you suspect your pet may have dental issues:
- Unusual bad breath
- Loss of appetite
If you notice any of the above behaviors from your dog or cat, schedule an appointment to have your pet examined by one of our veterinarians.
Bartow Animal Hospital offers examinations of teeth and gums, teeth cleaning, tooth repair, extractions, root canals, and other basic services, as well as instruction on home dental cleaning and care. If necessary, your veterinarian might also request digital radiography (x-rays).
Once our veterinarian examines your pet and a course of action is decided upon, you can be assured that all procedures and treatments will be considered necessary and will be cost effective. If you are located in Acworth, Woodstock, Cartersville, Emerson, Bartow County, Cobb County or the surrounding areas and need dental work for your pets, contact us today!
