Creating Happy & Healthy Smiles for Your Pets
Is your pet having a hard time eating or is losing weight? Do they have bad breath, or have they been drooling more? Have you noticed that their gums are red and swollen or they have plaque buildup on their teeth? These are all signs that your pets dental health is suffering and they could use a trip to Duck Creek Animal Hospital in Smyrna, DE, for a cleaning and checkup.
What Causes Bad Breath?
Bad breath is a sign of an unhealthy mouth and is caused by bacteria. The bacteria causes plaque and tartar to build up on your pet’s teeth, resulting in red and swollen gums, bad breath, and other common symptoms.
Why Is Dental Care Important?
Dental hygiene may be more important than you think. It is imperative that your pet’s dental health be taken seriously, as dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. If bad dental health is gone untreated, your pets teeth can fall out, their gums can become swollen and they can have trouble and discomfort eating. Routine checkups can help prevent future health complications, and besides, who doesn’t like eliminating the bad “dog breath”?
Rely On the Professionals at Duck Creek Animal Hospital
We care deeply about the health, comfort, and happiness of your furry friend. Let us examine and evaluate your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any current dental issues or if we foresee there being any in the future. We may recommend a more detailed examination (which will require sedation), a dental cleaning, or at-home dental care options and remedies.
Our team will offer expert advice on keeping your pet’s mouth healthy and clean. Even if you believe your furry companion has healthy teeth and gums, it is still important to get them checked regularly, as many issues are below the gum line.
We want your pet to live a long, happy life, filled with clean, healthy smiles. Maintaining a healthy mouth is part of that and the caring team at Duck Creek Animal Hospital is committed to providing you and your pet with exceptional service, care, and advice.
If you have any questions about your pets dental care, or would like more information on the services we offer, feel free to call us or request an appointment with our trained staff today!
