Pet Dental Exams
The veterinarians and staff at MountainView Veterinary Hospital love animals and are enthusiastic about pet health care. Our passion for pet care includes pet dental care. Our doctors have extensive experience in the management of dental disease, oral surgery and the creation of long-term treatment plans customized for you and your pet.
If your pet's breath smells worse than usual, he may be suffering from a dental issue. You may not be our regular patient, however, we welcome you to contact us with questions or concerns about your pet's dental health. Our animal hospital offers pet dental care to your furry friends.
Why Is Pet Dental Care So Important?
Routine pet dental care is more than tooth and mouth decay. You can prevent serious problems with regular dental visits to the veterinarian. If left undetected or managed, mouth pain may prevent your cherished pet from eating. Broken teeth or open wounds in the mouth allow infections and dangerous bacteria to enter your animal's bloodstream.
Routine Dental Care for Puppies and Kittens
When you acquire a kitten or puppy, you may be able to brush your young pet's teeth regularly. Teeth brushing is easier to accomplish with puppies than with most kittens. Start when your pet is young so that your pet will become accustomed to this procedure. Ask your vet to recommend the correct animal toothpaste and brushing instrument for your pet.
Also, puppies and some kittens tend to chew on all sorts of non-edible items. Routine dental visits allow the vet to check for broken or damaged teeth and cuts or sores in your curious pet's mouth. Open cuts could lead to more severe pet health problems by allowing dangerous bacteria to enter your animal's bloodstream.
Missing or crooked teeth can predispose your pet to early dental disease. At MountainView Veterinary Hospital we may be able to address tooth problems before the adult teeth erupt, which leads to a healthy, pain free mouth
A Dental Care Visit at our Veterinary Hospital
When your pet is admitted for an oral care visit, our veterinarian will perform a comprehensive oral exam to evaluate for oral cancers and disease and will take full mouth digital dental x-rays. We will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your pet's oral health several months after the initial appointment.
