If you're a dog owner, then of course you care about making sure your canine companion is healthy and happy. Unfortunately, many dog owners fail to take proper care of their dogs' teeth and gums, leading to dental issues down the road. Here at Black Mountain Road Pet Clinic, we specialize in providing the highest level of dental care to your pet.
There are a number of dental problems that are common in dogs specifically. Plaque and tartar buildup is a very common issue that can be avoided by simply taking the time to brush your dog's teeth or provide him or her with teeth-cleaning toys.
Over time, tartar and plaque buildup can lead to gum disease in dogs, which is extremely common. Symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen gums that bleed easily in addition to bad breath. Unfortunately, if left untreated, gum disease can result in a loss of adult teeth and other health problems in dogs.
We recommend bringing your dog to an experienced and skilled dog dentist at least once a year for a routine exam and cleaning. This is a great way to get rid of excess plaque build-up and get your dog treatment for any other potential issues. By having your dog see a dentist regularly, you can help protect him or her from gum disease and other potentially painful dental problems down the road.
Not to mention, when your dog's teeth are taken care of, you can enjoy the peace of mind in avoiding costly dental bills as well.
