Comprehensive Dental Care for Naperville Pets
Springbrook Animal Care Center offers comprehensive pet dental care services for dogs and cats. Regular pet dental care is a key component to your pet’s overall wellness. We understand your pet’s bad breath is not their most endearing feature, and it is often a sign of dental problems.
Pet Oral Health
Luckily, dogs and cats do not typically get cavities. However, they are very susceptible to periodontal disease. Bacteria form on the teeth and infect the gums and surrounding tissue. If left untreated, this infection can move to the bloodstream and cause serious health problems involving the heart, liver, and kidneys.
Please contact us for a dental exam if your pet is exhibiting any of the signs or symptoms of periodontal disease such as:
- Bad breath
- Swollen or bleeding gums
- Pawing at the mouth
- Difficulty in eating
- Loose or missing teeth
- Weight loss or loss of appetite
Professional Veterinary Dental Care
Proper pet oral care is important to the overall health of your pet. The pet experts of Springbrook Animal Care Center recommend the following preventive care plan for your pet:
A complete pet dental examination beginning around age 1
Pet dental cleaning under anesthesia includes ultrasonic tooth scaling, polishing, and fluoride treatment
Home pet dental care
Diet, chew toys, and regular brushing at home
For your pet’s safety and comfort, veterinary dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia. Springbrook Animal Care Center uses the most advanced methods of anesthesia and monitoring available.
Home Pet Dental Care
We recommend regular home pet dental care between professional cleaning services. We can discuss options for home dental care and demonstrate the proper technique for brushing your pet’s teeth. For your reference, we offer pet owners these helpful handouts to download and print:
The pet experts at Springbrook Animal Care Center are committed to the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease for all pets.
