Pet Dental Care is something pet owners can’t ignore. Did you know that regularly brushing your dog or cat’s teeth and providing her with a healthy diet and plenty of chew toys can go a long way toward keeping her mouth healthy? Many cats and dogs show signs of gum disease by the time they’re four years old because they aren’t provided with proper mouth care—and bad breath is often the first sign of a pet dental care problem. Give your dog regular home checks and make sure you visit us for a complete dental check.
Many health problems start in the mouth. Plaque, tartar, periodontal disease, and infected teeth serve as a source of inflammation and infection for the rest of the body. Dental disease is also a source of pain. There are many ways that dog and cat owners can help their veterinarian provide a healthy mouth for their pet. Our dental services at Mooikloof Animal Hospital include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery.
