Pittsburg Pet Dentistry Services
Happy Pets Have Healthy Mouths
Don’t overlook your pet’s dental health! Your pet’s overall wellness can be impacted by poor dental health, which is why the veterinarians at Pittsburg Veterinary Clinic recommend regular dental care as part of their routine care. Dental disease is one of the most common diseases among cats and dogs, but can also affect larger animals like cows, horses, and goats. Also known as periodontal disease, dental disease can be easy to miss by even the most attentive pet owners. As part of your pet’s routine wellness exams, our veterinary team will check your pet’s mouth and assess their oral health. We’ll make recommendations for your pet’s ongoing dental care based on our thorough examination of your pet. With our help, your pet will enjoy a healthy, happy smile for many years to come!
Canine & Feline Dental Care
Periodontal disease is extremely common among dogs and cats. It is caused by the same bacteria - plaque - that causes dental disease in humans. Without proper care such as regular brushing, periodontal disease can cause serious health issues down the line.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, your pet may be suffering from dental disease:
- Smelly or unusually bad breath
- Blood in saliva or water dish
- Difficulty eating or loss of appetite
- Excessive drooling
- Missing or loose teeth
Any of the above symptoms can be a sign of periodontal disease. Bring your pet in to see our team right away if you notice any combination of these symptoms!
You can help your pet battle periodontal disease simply by brushing their teeth regularly. Just like in humans, brushing regularly can help dislodge plaque buildup on the teeth. For pets, certain chew toys and treats can also help keep plaque at bay. However, if the plaque is allowed to accumulate, it can begin to move below the gum line and start to cause issues that only a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia can tackle.
At Pittsburg Veterinary Clinic, we’re fully equipped to handle professional dental cleaning under anesthesia. Our surgical suite is filled with state-of-the-art equipment that will help get your pet back on the path to good oral health.
Large Animal Dentistry in Pittsburg
Cows, horses, and goats are not immune to dental disease! These herbivores have teeth that have evolved to be hardwearing, adapted to grazing. Modern technology has made it so that these animals don’t necessarily graze like they had evolved to; modern concentrated animal feed means that these animals spend less time chewing and has even changed the chewing patterns of these animals. This means that wear patterns on the teeth are different now for equines and bovines which aren’t completely free range. The veterinarians at Pittsburg Veterinary Clinic know a thing or two about dentistry for these animals! As large animal specialists, our team of Pittsburg veterinarians will be able to assess your cows’ or horses’ teeth and provide the care they need to keep their mouths healthy.
