Teeth Cleaning and Extraction Services for Cats and Dogs
We often look at our pets with some envy for their seemingly carefree lives. As you head off to face the challenges of another workday, you catch a glimpse of a furry friend who is obviously not affected by any of the world’s problems.
In many ways, that may be true. However, there are problems that may be affecting your pet’s life that you are not able to see, and chief among them are dental issues.
A Common Problem
Almost all pets develop dental issues as they age, as is the case with humans. In fact, four out of five pets that are more than three years old have some form of gum disease.
At Affordable Animal Hospital in Silverlake, we work to help pet owners understand to the importance of dental care, and the positive impact it can have on a pet’s health. We offer a full range of dental services, from cleaning to extraction, that can keep your dog or cat’s mouth in good shape.
Issues You May Not Notice
If your pet injures a leg, you won’t have any trouble noticing that something is wrong. However, you’re probably not in the habit of examining your pet’s teeth – and even if you do take the occasional peek it’s not likely that you would have clear idea exactly what you’re seeing.
It’s vital to have your pet’s mouth checked by a professional. This is the only way to catch dental problems in their early stages of development and to be able to address them before they become significant sources of pain to your pet.
A Wise Investment
This is an investment that will bring returns in more ways than one. You’ll not only have a happier, healthier pet – you’ll also avoid the need for expensive procedures that can be required once a major problem has developed.
