Ark Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care

Dental Care

Taking care of your pet’s teeth is just as important to their overall health as other aspects of wellness maintenance, which is why Ark Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care doctors are practiced in professional animal dentistry.

Dental Care For Your Pet

Good dental health is just as important for our animals as it is for us. Routine dental care for your pet is a vital aspect of maintaining a healthy and comfortable lifestyle for them. Dental issues can fester and cause serious pain and discomfort when left untreated, which is why the staff at Ark Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care understands how important it is that their patients regularly have their teeth checked and cleaned.

Dental disease can spread to other areas of the body, not just the mouth. Severe dental decay can cause infections in other organs, such as the heart and kidneys, which can potentially shorten the lifespan of an animal. Some common symptoms of dental disease to look out for include:

  • bad breath
  • excessive drooling
  • difficulty chewing
  • A yellow or brown crust of plaque on the teeth
  • loss of appetite
  • teeth chattering
  • weight loss
  • sneezing and nasal discharge

In order to keep your pet’s teeth clean and free of dental disease and decay, an annual teeth cleaning is highly recommended. Our veterinarians can take care of your pet’s teeth and dental wellness just as efficiently as they can take care of other aspects of their health.
