You’re not likely to encounter an animal with great-smelling breath. But did you know that especially offensive doggy or kitty breath could be a sign of oral disease? At The Vet House, we understand that maintaining your pet’s dental care can go a long way toward preserving his or her overall health. That’s why we offer expert veterinary dental services in the Richardson and Plano areas. Here’s how we can help with your pet’s dental care:
Improve Your Pet’s Dental Hygiene
Neglecting to maintain your pet’s dental hygiene can result in health issues as serious as heart, lung, and kidney disease. Your dog’s or cat’s teeth are just as susceptible to plaque buildup as your own pearly whites. Without routine care, tartar can develop and cause separation of the gums from the teeth to form pockets of bacteria. To reduce your pet’s risk for periodontal disease, we provide comprehensive dental cleanings.
Give You Tips to Maintain Your Pet’s Health
The best way to prevent your pet’s risk of dental woes is to introduce hygiene practices early. It may be difficult to acclimate your dog or cat to routine tooth brushing, but the sooner you do so, the easier it becomes. Our veterinarians can teach you the proper brushing technique to clean your pet’s teeth. Be sure to regularly inspect for signs of oral disease, such as inflamed gums or cysts under the tongue, and schedule follow-up appointments as necessary.
Utilize EVA Vet Plus Digital Radiography
Our experienced team of veterinarians is able to deliver the highest quality of dental care to your pet. Using cutting-edge X-ray technology offered by the EVA Vet Plus system, we can safely assess your pet’s oral health. This accurate dental imaging system is chemical-free and emits less radiation than the average X-ray. The EVA Vet Plus sensor provides nearly instant images, which allows us to retake pictures as necessary and is perfectly safe and comfortable for your pet.
