Periodontal Disease & Your Pet’s Oral Health
Dental disease is considered the most common disease in cats and dogs. Periodontal disease refers to an infection of the gums which hold the teeth in place. It is caused by the buildup of plaque on the teeth, just like in humans. As the plaque builds up, it hardens on the teeth and creates more space for even more plaque to stick to. At the early stages, periodontal disease is easy to miss but also easily treated. Brushing can help dislodge plaque and stop the disease in its tracks. As the disease progresses, however, periodontal disease can cause permanent damage to their mouth and jaw, and needs professional care in order to be fully treated.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- Bad breath
- Blood in your pet’s saliva or water dish
- Difficulty eating
- Loose teeth
You can avoid the progression of dental disease by bringing your pet into Wylie Veterinary Hospital for regular wellness care. We regularly check your pet’s mouth for signs of periodontal disease and can intervene earlier if your pet is receiving routine care.
We are also able to help you understand the measures you can take at home to keep your pet’s smile sparkling. Our team will help you learn the best techniques for brushing your pet’s teeth and give tips on certain toys or treats that can also benefit their oral health.
Professional Dental Cleaning at Wylie Veterinary Hospital
If your pet’s teeth need a professional dental cleaning, Wylie Veterinary Hospital is ready to help!
