Pet Dental in San Antonio

Dental health is a crucial aspect of your pet's overall well-being. Just like humans, pets are susceptible to a variety of dental problems that can cause pain and prevent them from being active. At Oaks North Animal Hospital in San Antonio, TX, we provide exams and cleanings to relieve any discomfort your furry friend is experiencing and improve its health.

Signs of Dental Problems in Pets

There are several signs that may indicate your pet is struggling with dental problems. Some of these signs include:

•           Bad Breath: Persistent bad breath is a common sign of dental disease in pets.

•           Difficulty Eating: If your pet seems reluctant to eat or has difficulty chewing its food, it could be due to dental pain.

•           Red or Swollen Gums: Inflamed gums are a sign of gingivitis, which is an early stage of gum disease.

•           Loose or Missing Teeth: Loose or missing teeth can be a symptom of advanced dental disease.

Risks of Untreated Dental Problems

If left untreated, dental problems in pets can lead to serious health consequences. Bacteria can enter the bloodstream through infected gums or teeth and may affect the heart, liver, and kidneys. Dental pain can also make it difficult for your furry companion to eat, which can lead to malnutrition.

Professional Cleanings

Regular professional dental cleanings are essential for your pet's oral health. During a cleaning, our veterinarians will remove plaque and tartar buildup from your pet's teeth. We will also check for signs of dental disease and perform any necessary extractions.

At-Home Care

In addition to professional cleanings, there are several things you can do at home to help improve your cat or dog’s dental health. Brushing your pet's teeth daily can help keep his or her teeth clean and healthy. You can also offer dental chews and toys that help to scrape away plaque and tartar buildup.
