Saginaw MI Dog Getting Teeth Brushed

Animal Dental

Caring for your pet’s teeth is just as important as caring for your own. We at Cole Veterinary Hospital recommend evaluating your pet’s teeth every year. Approximately 70-80% of pets show signs of dental disease by the age of three. Advanced animal dental disease can lead to infection and tooth loss, and also have effects on the heart, liver, and kidneys. There are some noticeable signs that your pet is experiencing some form of dental disease such as:

  • Mouth pain
  • Smelly Breath
  • Redness and Swelling of the Gums
  • Food falling from the mouth or a sudden reluctance to eat dry food.

If your pet is experiencing any of these symptoms, let our veterinarians take a look to determine if a professional dental cleaning is needed.

Preventative Animal Dental Health

We at Cole Veterinary Hospital offer state of the art digital dental radiographs to allow us to evaluate all teeth above and below the gum line. This enables us to determine if your pet needs only a scaling and polishing, or if extractions are needed. We also counsel owners as to which preventative dental care they can do at home, before and after dental procedures, as home oral hygiene is important to maintain your pet’s dental heath between professional cleanings.
