Pet Dentistry & Dental Diagnosis
It would be hard to digest but, around 80% of pets suffer from minor to major periodontal disease. This number is soaring as pet owners overlook the dental health issues of their pets. Pet owners need to understand that just like humans, pets also require dental services. A minor dental issue can lead to pain or discomfort affecting the overall health condition of your pet. We, at Westheights Veterinary Hospital, host an array of oral health assessments and treatments at highly competitive prices.
Our pet dentistry service starts with a detailed assessment of teeth and gums. It includes probing the gums, cavity filling, root canal, and many other advanced dental treatments. Every year we celebrate the month of February as the dental health care month for our pets.
Periodontal Diseases and Pets
Periodontal disease is associated with the gums affecting the supporting structure of the tooth. Poor dental hygiene leads to bad breath, bruxism, anorexia, and other diseases that can beset the tooth and overall health condition of the pets.
