The term “dog breath” is very commonly used to describe the smell many owners are familiar with when their pet yawns or pants. Many people do not realize that this unpleasant odor can often be a sign of dental issues for their pet. Bacteria in the mouth causes pets to have bad breath which can lead to the buildup of plaque and tartar on the teeth. Not only can this lead to further issues with your pet’s mouth, but it may also contribute to other bodily issues as well.
There are many different services and products that can be used to improve and maintain your pet’s oral health. Some of the products that are carried by the Animal Clinic of Pinckney include OraVet, Dentahex Oral Rinse, Dentahex Oral Chews, and VetzLife Oral Sprays. These products can be used at home to improve and maintain your pet’s oral hygiene.
In some cases, at home dental treatments may not be enough to remove the tartar and plaque that has already built up in a pet’s mouth. Dental cleanings are a service offered by the Animal Clinic of Pinckney to give your pet a “fresh from the dentist” feeling in their mouth and can be a good start to dental care if it has never been done in the past.
Dental care is just as important for your pets as it is for us and can make a huge difference in their life. Talk to us today to see which option would be best for you and your pet.
