Pet Dentistry in Portland & Gresham, OR
Is your pet’s bad breath coming between you?
Despite what you may have heard, foul breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without appropriate care, your companion’s mouth can become bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
The good news is, with support from the team at Wildwood Animal Hospital, this can all be prevented.
Our professional dentistry services include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some common signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose, or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen, or bleeding
If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an exam. We’ll pinpoint the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close cuddles with your furry family member. The comprehensive dental services at Wildwood Animal Hospital can help get you there!
