Importance of Pet Dental Care

Pet Dental Care

Dental care is important to both people and pets. Brushing your pet’s teeth at home and scheduling annual exams and cleanings at Arbor Ridge Pet Clinic in Fitchburg, WI, can help preserve your pet’s oral health. Healthy teeth and gums are essential for a dog or cat’s growth, strength, and vitality. As a pet owner, you can’t underestimate the importance of pet dental care.

Benefits of Pet Dental Services 

Dental exams and cleanings from our Fitchburg veterinarian are preventive measures to protect your pet’s oral health. Annual dental exams enable our vet to uncover signs of dental issues in their early stages before they cause major damage to your pet’s teeth. Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar buildup that can cause periodontal disease, a serious gum infection that can lead to tooth loss and other health issues.

Other benefits of routine dental care include:

  • Keeps infections and dental disease at bay to avoid damage to your pet’s teeth
  • Prevents tooth loss from periodontal disease
  • Spares your pet from the pain and suffering of tooth infections and gum disease
  • Keeps your pet’s teeth and gums healthy so it can eat without pain and discomfort
  • Safeguards your pet’s overall health (periodontal disease can lead to organ damage and other medical issues)

Importance of Routine Care

If you’ve been neglecting the care of your pet’s teeth, there’s no time like the present to make dental care a priority. The sooner you bring your pet in for a dental checkup, the sooner we can identify and curtail the progression of dental issues. We recommend scheduling annual dental exams and cleanings for your dog or cat. Senior pets may need to be seen more frequently as they’re more prone to dental disease. During your pet’s next visit, we’ll outline a plan to address dental problems your pet may have so we can restore its oral health.
