If they don't receive regular dental care, most pets will develop periodontal disease by the time they're three years old. And if not addressed promptly, it can cause pain, difficulty chewing and swallowing, and other serious issues.
Pet owners in need of veterinary dental services in Fort Myers are encouraged to make an appointment with Kelly Crossing Animal Hospital. With our help, you can ensure that your pet will have the happy, healthy grin they deserve. Let's examine several measures you can take to keep your pet's teeth in good condition.
Starting home dental care for your pet as early as possible is strongly recommended. Pets of any age can learn to accept having their teeth brushed, though. When using the right toothpaste and toothbrush, daily tooth brushing for your dog or cat is as safe as it is for you. If you'd like some guidance on how to brush your pet's teeth, we'd be happy to provide it.
If you're in the market for a new treat or toy for your pet, look for one that doubles as a dental hygiene tool. Plaque and tartar can be reduced with them, but they are not a replacement for regular brushing or professional dental care. Some may even freshen your pet's breath.
Your pet’s teeth and gums should be checked and cleaned once a year. We'll give their mouth a comprehensive checkup, take x-rays, and give their teeth a thorough cleaning, including the areas around and below the gum line. In addition, we will check for problems and remove seriously damaged teeth when necessary. If your dog or cat needs pet dental care in Fort Myers, Kelly Crossing Animal Hospital can help. Please contact us immediately if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment.
