Does your pet’s bad breath make you turn away from cuddles and kisses?
It’s not necessary to have to learn how to live with unpleasant breath from your four-legged friend when you are a pet owner. When your pet has bad breath, it most likely means that he or she needs some dental care. If your animal companion doesn’t receive sufficient attention to this issue, it can lead to a build-up of dangerous bacteria. This bacterium may even spread throughout your pet’s bloodstream to cause other serious health issues or even possibly lead to a shorter life. However, if you seek out the right support and care you can prevent any further complications.
At Desert Paws, we have the skills and dedication to provide attention and care for your pet to have a healthier and happier smile. The services that we offer include those that are routine and preventative, to keep tartar and plaque from developing or getting worse, along with advanced treatment for existing oral problems. Whether you bring your pet in for an annual cleaning and exam or because your pet needs to have a tooth extracted, we’ve got your dental care needs covered. We always use an effective yet safe anesthetic, as well as monitor your pet closely for ultimate safety.
Signs of dental disease within pets include the following:
- A sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Bad breath (halitosis)
- Problems picking up his or her food
- A substantial loss in appetite
- Pain or swelling in the face
- Pawing at his or her mouth
- Red gums, or gums that are bleeding or swelling
- Missing, broken, loose, or yellow teeth
- Not wanting the head touched (head shyness)
- “Talking” or making noises when he or she eats or yawns
If your pet starts to show any of these symptoms, you should schedule a dental examination right away. This will allow us to find out what the issue is, so we can address it and improve his or her prognosis.
Besides professional dental care, we’ll also discuss your pet’s teeth and what you can do to help maintain them for optimal oral health care all year-round. You must brush your pet’s teeth on a regular basis, daily would be ideal, but at least three times a week if possible. Desert Paws staff will happily provide you with a demonstration of techniques that will keep your animal companion’s mouth healthy, as well as advice on the dental products that may be the best for your pet.
We want you to be able to have as many close cuddles and kisses with your four-legged friend as you want. By getting your pet’s dental care services from Desert Paws your pet is sure to have improved dental health care and be much happier.
