Dental disease is the most commonly diagnosed disease in pets. Severe dental disease and gingivitis can lead to infections in the rest of the body and other organs including the heart, kidneys, and liver. As the bacteria and tartar build, it will cause inflammation in the gums (gingivitis) and then proceed up into the bone that holds the teeth. Once in the bone, the bacteria eats away at the bone and causes permanent damage. The process is painful and dangerous to your pet’s health. Your pet may not be able to show you that they are in pain, so it is up to you to be consciences and prevent these painful procedures before they occur.
We recommend that you brush your pets teeth at minimum 3 times a week and get professional dental cleanings 1-2 times per year. Dental cleanings are preformed under general anesthesia at Paws N’ Hooves Veterinary Hospital. The cost is dependent upon the weight of your pet and the amount of work that needs to be done.
Paws N’ Hooves Veterinary Hospital requires a presurgical appointment to determine the severity of your pets dental health. At this initial visit a doctor will provide a custom estimate. All pets must be approved for this procedure. If you have any questions please contact us at 915-584-4491.
