Has it been a while since your pet’s last dental evaluation or cleaning? Perhaps your pet has never had a dental cleaning. We want to make sure your pet’s mouth gets the care it needs.
The ugly truth is that most dogs and cats over the age of three have some symptoms of periodontal (dental) disease. Left untreated, a lack of dental care can eventually result in gum inflammation, tooth loss, difficulty eating, and chronic pain. Plus, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause heart, liver, and kidney complications.
Pets are experts at hiding illness—especially cats—so your pet could be suffering and you might not know it. Regular dental exams and cleanings are an essential part of your pet’s health and well-being and can even help them live longer.
At West Hills Veterinary Centre, we offer a wide array of services, including oral exams, dental charting, sedation, and X-rays. Catching problems early can help your pet live a longer, healthier life. Call us at 252-438-7163 today request an appointment!
