Is bad breath driving a wedge between you and your pet?

Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that pet parents must simply learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your companion needs to visit the dentist. 

Without proper care, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life. 

The good news is, with support from Live Oak Veterinary Hospital, this can all be prevented.

Our professional dentistry services include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. 

Some common signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food 
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your pet is showing any of these signs, it’s time to book an appointment. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the chances of a good prognosis. We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round. 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close cuddles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Live Oak Veterinary Hospital can help get you there!
