One of the best things a pet owner can do to insure overall health, is to routinely check their teeth, gums, and oral cavity. Be sure to be looking for any fowl looking or smelling characteristics. I know Fido's breath is not minty fresh to begin with, but I mean an unusual bad odor. Look for any loose teeth, tumors on the gums, cysts beneath their tongues, just anything that does not look right. Call the clinic and let them know what is going on, we can help you and your pet!
The American Animal Hospital Association recommends you start cleaning your cat's and small to medium sized dog's teeth at 1 year old. If you have a larger dog, regular teeth cleanings should start at 2 years of age. You can get your pet's regular dental check-ups, brushed, scaled and polished, or even teeth extracted right here at our clinic. Dr. Gibbs is trained in animal dental health as well as overall health.
You can also be helping from home. We do have dental care at the clinic (veterinarian made and approved pet toothpaste) . Consult with Dr. Gibbs about the best way to keep your pet's teeth, mouth, and overall health in tip top condition,
