Canine Dental Services Back
Called the “silent disease,” dental disease is perhaps one of the most under-recognized serious health risks for your pets. Bad breath is the first indicator that your pet has a dental disease whether it is gingivitis or periodontal disease. These diseases are the major cause of both acute and chronic pain and has far-reaching effects on your pet’s major organ function and longevity. Once gingivitis or periodontitis develop, bacteria are able to spread through the bloodstream and infect other internal organs.
It is a good idea to check your pet’s teeth often for redness or inflammation. If you see redness of the gums, tartar on the teeth and smell a foul odour, you must bring them in for a thorough checkup. One of our veterinarians can perform an evaluation of your pet’s oral cavity and schedule a dental appointment as required. Call Bickford Vet today and help your pet as they can’t tell you if they are in pain.
The dental procedure will include:
- Pre-dental exam
- Appropriate blood tests
- IV fluid therapy
- Body warming support
- Vital signs monitoring
- Dental X-rays
- Complete cleaning and polishing of your pet’s teeth
