If you’re like our family, your pets are an integral and well-loved part of the family and you want to always ensure that they are as healthy and happy as can be. One thing that can be easy to miss if you don’t get your pets checked regularly is dental disease. Our dogs and cats can’t always tell us when they don’t feel jsut right and dental disease can come on slowly so you might not notice it.
In fact Dental diseases are the most common clinical health problem in dogs and cats. Dental diseases are present in nearly 85 per cent of all pets past the age of one. And small dogs are especially prone to dental disease.
You can watch for the signs of dental disease which include bad breath, lost teeth and excessive drooling but by then things may have progressed to far. The best thing to do for preventative measures that would most likely less costly than the dental work after the fact is to have pets checked regularly by your veterinarians.
Here’s a great infographic on #DentalPetFacts
As part of their physical examination, veterinarians will perform a methodical orofacial examination that allows them to identify dental disease, even in its early stages. Veterinarians will then prescribe a treatment option for the pet. The treatment may include brushing, a dental cleaning or a dental pet food diet.
We learned this valuable lesson when we brought our chihuahua Little Zeus (LZ) in for one of his regular veterinarian check-ups. It turns out that he had a tooth that was causing him some sensitivity, we had no idea as he did not seem to be in pain. If we hadn’t gone for his check up we would not have known and he might have been in discomfort for a much longer time before we had any idea.
Thank goodness that we schedule our two dogs and our cat for regular veterinarian treatments, in addition to regular exercise and providing them with top quality cat and dog food. All to keep our furry family members happy and healthy.
