Dental Hygiene for Pets

Just as dental health is part of holistic health and wellbeing for humans, it is also important for your pets, too. Dental health is closely linked to overall wellness- and poor dental care can manifest some painful conditions. As part of good pet dental hygiene, schedule your pet’s dental exam and cleaning with a veterinarian on our team at Fairlea Animal Hospital in Lewisburg, WV.

Importance of Pet Dental Hygiene

As for the importance of pet dental care, where to begin? Plaque builds up and can break away, causing problems in other parts of the body. Reduce the risk of a painful infection with dental care that includes brushing and regular exams.

Pets with good dental care have better breath and lower risk of periodontal disease, common in both pets and humans. Regular care curbs costs later- and could prevent a painful situation for your pet, too. Pets with advanced decay may lose their teeth, but not after experiencing great discomfort and difficulty that is preventable. Talk to a vet provider on our team to learn more.

What Owners Can Do

Just like humans, pets can benefit from brushing their teeth regularly. This might be easier said than done. Pets that are unaccustomed to the practice may be resistant. You may schedule cleanings with a veterinarian on our team but make up for it at home with crunchy treats that remove tartar and plenty of fresh water. Only use toothbrushes and toothpastes that are intended for pets.
