Fremont’s Best Pet Dental Care
Did you know that you can add two to four years to your pet’s life with proper dental care?
Dental hygiene for your pet is an important part of your pet’s health and can often be the cause of serious illness. If left untreated, pet dental problems can lead to larger systemic issues in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver.
However, dental disease is often overlooked by many pet owners. Unfortunately, it is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.
Here and At Home for Pet Dental Care
Pet dental care does not end with a visit to your Fremont pet dentistry specialist at Ace Animal Hospital. You need to continue your veterinarian’s good work at home by incorporating feline/canine teeth cleaning and brushing as part of a home pet dental care regimen. Any member of our Fremont pet dentistry and veterinarian staff can show you the proper method of brushing your pet’s teeth as well as help you select the most effective pet dental products for your pet.
It is also important for you to recognize the signs and symptoms of pet dental problems and contact our Fremont pet dentists immediately should you find them, which include:
- Bad breath – one of the first signs of pet dental disease
- A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
- Red and swollen gums
- Pain or bleeding when your pet eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
- Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
- Loose or missing teeth
