Despite what you may have heard, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, to the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.

Without appropriate care and attention, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria. Over time, this bacteria can spread through the bloodstream, causing a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.

The good news is, with the right support, this can all be prevented.

The professional dentistry services at Best Friends Animal Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.

Some of the 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 a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your pet. We’ll also show you how you can help keep those teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round.

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Best Friends Animal Clinic can help get you there!
