You may not realize it, but we take regular dentist checkups for granted. While your pet's teeth are an integral part of their livelihood, you may not realize that pets need regular dental care just as much as their owners do. All too often, pet owners neglect to seek preventative care for their animal's dental needs. This puts their animals at risk for a host of diseases that can severely impact their life. They may also not realize when their pet needs dental care to relieve tooth decay or other related discomfort.Healthy teeth make for a healthy pet! Ensuring that your pet receives quality dental care will prevent bad breath and gum disease, promote healthy eating, and allow your pet to avoid the pain of losing infected teeth. Dental infections in pets can lead to severe disease, organ failure, and even death. At East Shore Veterinary Services, we provide on-site dental care for pets. We can provide an overall checkup of your cat or dog's dental health, as well as demonstrate helpful cleaning techniques to owners and steps for preventative measures. When your pet has a healthy set of teeth, you the owner are sure to be smiling!
