Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pets’ health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
At Baker Animal clinic we perform dental radiographs to better find abnormalities, thorough cleanings above and below the gumline, that you can’t access at home, and provide our clients with Before and After pictures of their pet’s mouth.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (405) 372-4525 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s’ dental cleaning.
