Pet Dental Care at Fleur Pet Hospital
Just like humans, your pets need proper dental care to keep their teeth healthy for a lifetime. Fleur Pet Hospital in Des Moines, IA, is here to help pet owners give their furry family members the dental care they need to ensure they remain happy and healthy. Our team is here to tell you about our pet dental services and the benefits they can provide your pet.
Our Pet Dental Services
Our animal hospital provides several services that help support your pet’s oral health. Our veterinarian can perform a dental exam to assess your pet’s oral health and clean its teeth and gums. We will check every tooth and look for signs of gum disease, plaque, tartar, and cavities. We can give prompt treatment if we spot dental issues to protect your pet’s teeth and overall health. We can also perform most of our teeth cleanings without requiring anesthesia. If your pet requires oral surgery, we can discuss possible treatment options.
Our veterinarian may recommend starting a home dental regimen for your pet, like brushing its teeth daily. You can also use a dental rinse specially formulated for your pet, along with dental chews and food. We can perform annual X-rays of your pet’s teeth to help us detect and treat dental issues before they lead to significant complications.
The Benefits of Pet Dental Services
You may not know that around 85 percent of dogs and cats over the age of three have some form of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease occurs when the gums and bones supporting the teeth are affected by oral bacteria. Thankfully, this issue is preventable if you tackle it early on with preventative measures. While taking your pet to the veterinarian for regular check-ups is crucial for determining its overall health, the same applies to pet dental care with dental health. Here are some of the benefits your pet will receive with our pet dental care:
• Regular dental cleanings keep your pet’s teeth in good condition. Strong and healthy teeth make eating and absorbing nutrients easier.
• Our veterinarian can treat tooth infections and prevent several health problems. A healthy mouth ensures your pet can stay healthier for longer while keeping infections from spreading throughout the rest of its body.
• Strong, healthy teeth improve your pet’s quality of life by preventing pain and discomfort.
