Keep your dog or cat’s teeth clean and gums healthy — book a cleaning today. Our Milwaukee-based veterinary dentists provide gentle, thorough dental cleanings.
Sometimes, keeping your pet’s chompers healthy can feel like a big job. Luckily, our practice provides advanced veterinary dentistry services in addition to basic dental care. 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.
The mouth. It’s a pretty disgusting place, both in humans and in our dog and cat counterparts. It’s warm and wet and a great place for bacteria to set up shop. With that thought in mind, how many of you out there brush your pet’s teeth? Give them dental chews daily? What about plan for a professional dental cleaning for your pet every year?
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Evervet, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
Catching dental problems in the early stages can greatly help your pet in the long run. Contact us right away if your pet experiences any of the following:
