Our veterinarian is professionally trained to do dentistry which can help diagnose and treat a range of oral health issues. For most pets, it is a challenge to stay still while the delicate process of examination and cleaning all parts of the mouth is carried out. Anesthesia is the only way to ensure a complete and non-painful dental procedure. The inhalant anesthesia offered is the same used in human medicine and is very safe.
Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:
- Bad breath
- Excessive drooling
- Dropping food
- Sudden disinterest in chew toys
- Loss of appetite
- Swollen or painful face
- Pawing at the mouth
- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
- Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
If your pet is exhibiting any of these things, it’s time to schedule an exam. We can determine what the problem is and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. To book a dental consult with our doctor feel free to call us at 905-670-1414.
