Improve & Maintain Your Pet’s Oral Health
One of the most overlooked aspects of any pet’s health is dentistry. Your pet’s oral health is vital – it can profoundly affect their overall well-being. Dental hygiene problems can lead to a slew of other health problems.
If you can’t remember the last time your pet had their teeth cleaned, or if you are concerned about a potential oral health problem in your pet, reach out to Shirlington Animal Hospital. Our veterinary dentists in Arlington offer comprehensive checkups and teeth cleanings as well as more intensive dental treatments.
The Importance of Preventative Dental Care
When it comes to your pet’s oral health, preventative care is key. By taking the time today to keep your pet’s teeth clean, you can protect them and help them avoid more serious problems later on down the road.
At Shirlington Animal Hospital, we offer routine dental checkups for dogs and cats. Our pet dentists in Arlington perform comprehensive exams to ensure your pet’s tooth and gum health. We can thoroughly clean their teeth and discuss any potential problems we encounter. We can also provide you with helpful tips and tricks to continue maintaining your pet’s dental health at home.
When to Schedule a Dental Appointment for Your Pet
Many pet owners don’t even think to check on their furry friend’s teeth, but good oral hygiene can make all the difference in your pet’s overall health and well-being.
We recommend scheduling an appointment at least once a year, or more frequently if you notice problems such as:
- Bad breath
- Broken, loose, or missing teeth
- Severely discolored teeth
- Strange chewing or drooling habits
- A refusal to eat or a lack of appetite
- Bleeding from gums
- Swelling in or around the mouth
Do not hesitate to reach out to our veterinarians if you have any questions about your pet’s oral health or if you have any pressing concerns. We would be happy to help and to conduct a thorough dental checkup.
