The Importance of Dental Cleaning
Without regular attention, your pet’s teeth and gums can become a haven for dangerous bacteria, which can start out as bad breath and spread to cause serious damage to your pet’s teeth and gums. As bacteria grow in your pet’s mouth, it can eventually spread through the bloodstream and cause a host of other medical problems throughout your pet’s entire body, including the heart, liver, and kidneys. It can even shorten your pet’s life.
You can help your pet by making a commitment to routine dental care, both professional and at-home.
Warrensburg Animal Hospital offers both routine and advanced pet dentistry services. Whether it’s an annual dental exam and cleaning or a complex procedure to treat and manage an existing oral health problem, we’re prepared to do whatever it takes to give your pet the smile he or she deserves!
