Pet Dental Care in Roseville, MN

You’ve probably been told throughout your life that it’s important for you to take care of your teeth, but did you know it’s important for your pet as well? Our pet dental care in Roseville, MN, helps your pet avoid dental disease and maintain oral health and comfort. Since dental diseases can lead to other complications, it’s best to always include dental health as a part of your pet’s wellness care.

 Our pet teeth cleaning service operates mostly on a preventative basis, keeping the gums and teeth strong and tartar-free. However, we also offer exams and some treatments if there’s already a problem. These can range from dental X-rays to tooth extractions and periodontal treatment. An annual checkup is critical to prevent issues like broken teeth and periodontal disease, which can even develop at younger ages.

 By bringing your pet to us for dog or cat teeth cleaning, regular vaccinations [link to Vaccinations], and wellness checkups, you can be sure that your pet will be happy and healthy for many long years. Get in touch with our friendly and dedicated staff to schedule an appointment with our skilled veterinary staff.

How To Know When You Need Pet Teeth Cleaning

If your pet has a dental problem, you may notice signs such as decreased appetite or dropping food, marked odor to breath, bleeding from the mouth, or reddened gums. Any of these signs indicates the need for a veterinary evaluation. We advise you to be careful when checking your pet’s mouth, as pain can cause animals to bite. There are many reasons why pet dental care is so important. Some other symptoms of a need for dental work are:

  • Bad Breath
  • Change In Eating Habits
  • Increased Urination and Drinking
  • Lethargy
  • Tartar On Teeth
  • Red Gums
  • Fractured teeth

The Importance of Caring for Your Pet’s Teeth

Most humans regularly visit their dentist, brush their teeth twice a day, floss, and use mouthwash. We know that failing to perform these basic dental care routines often results in toothaches, cavities, bad breath, and discolored teeth. Just like humans, dogs and cats can suffer from many of the same symptoms if their teeth are not properly cared for. By visiting our clinic for regularly scheduled cat and dog teeth cleaning and checkups, you can help your pet live a long and comfortable life.

Aside from pain and bad breath, poor dental care can even lead to more serious health concerns like tooth and gum infections, heart and kidney problems, periodontal disease, and tooth loss. An easy way to keep your pet’s teeth clean in between vet visits is to use special pet toothbrushes, teeth-strengthening water additives, or chew treats designed to clean plaque from the teeth.
