Pet Dental Health
Dental disease is one of the most frequently diagnosed problems in companion animals. At Seneca Animal Hospital, we provide everything from dental disease prevention to comprehensive teeth cleanings. Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pets’ health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Seneca Animal Hospital, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
Now Offering Digital Dental Radiographs
We want to provide the best medicine at Seneca Animal Hospital, and to provide the best dental cleaning we need to see what is going on below the gum line. That is why we have upgraded this service with digital dental radiographs, providing quick dental imaging to get those hidden problems fixed.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (502) 458-1161 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s’ dental cleaning.
