Is bad breath causing a rift between you and your furry family member?

Despite what you may have heard, foul breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. To the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist. 

Without adequate care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease could even potentially shorten your pet’s life. 

The good news is, with the right support, all of this can be prevented.

The professional dentistry services at Peterborough West Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. 

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 your pet is exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it swiftly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you techniques you can use at home to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round. 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close-up snuggles and cuddles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Peterborough West Animal Hospital can help get you there!
