Trilby Animal Hospital Promotes Great Pet Dental Health
Dental disease in animals can turn an otherwise healthy pet into a sick one. And it is much more common than most people think. Approximately 80% of all cats and dogs have dental disease by the age of two that may land them in an animal hospital. Fresh breath makes your pet a better companion, but pet wellness care goes way beyond minty freshness. Dental diseases can lead to serious health problems such as kidney, liver, and heart disease. Toledo veterinarians Drs. Moore have taken a keen interest in preventing and treating dental disease to help prevent more serious conditions.
Pet Dental Treatments Help Pets Live Healthy Lives
Just like wellness and hygiene for you means regular brushing and flossing, good pet wellness care includes pet dental treatments. Pet dental cleaning promotes healthy enamel, prevents erosion of gums, and makes your pet a more pleasant companion. It also helps pets live healthier lives. Residents of Toledo can visit the veterinarians in our animal hospital to develop a dental health routine for their pets.
Warm your pet up to the idea of pet dental cleanings. We promise you will save yourself a lot of grief if you get them used to the idea first. Letting your pet lick the toothpaste from the dental tool and get familiar with the paste and the tool will slowly introduce them to the idea. Once your pet is comfortable with the toothpaste and cleaning tool, very gently clean the teeth and gums. Focus on the outside areas first. The inside doesn't usually require the same cleaning. Cleaning your pets' teeth once or twice a week is frequent enough.
