Cat and Dog Teeth Cleaning Services in Henderson, NV
Do you practice good oral hygiene with your pet? If not, there’s no better time to start. Most dogs and cats over age 3 have some form of dental disease, which, in addition to affecting their oral health, can also affect their systemic health. Sunridge Animal Hospital offers professional cat and dog teeth cleaning services to Henderson, NV, Enterprise, NV and other surrounding areas as an essential preventative against gingivitis, periodontal disease, and other harmful conditions. We can also guide you along in finding the right at-home dental care methods to keep your pet’s teeth and gums as healthy as possible, for as long as possible.
What We Look for During an Oral Exam
Your veterinarian will need to check your pet’s mouth for specific signs that could point to a larger problem. Even bad breath can indicate something more serious. Here are a few of the things we look for:
- Swelling and redness of the gums
- Tooth decay
- Tooth root exposure
- Jaw problems
- Abnormal/misaligned bite
How to Manage Your Pet’s Dental Care at Home
We highly recommend brushing your pet’s teeth daily if not weekly, to prevent the buildup of plaque and tartar. There are also other products you can use to protect your pet from gingivitis and other problems, such as tartar control diets and treats, dental chews, and more. Our team would be happy to give you more information so you can make the best choices for your four-legged family member. If you have any questions, call us today at (702) 896-1716!
