If you are looking for dental care for dogs and cats in Granite Bay, look no further than Bayside Animal Hospital. Our team of veterinarians and support staff are here to ensure that your dogs and cats have healthy teeth and gums from their early lives to their senior years.
Did you know that by the age of three, most dogs and cats will experience some level of periodontal disease? Without the proper attention, periodontal disease can travel through the blood and cause health issues in other parts of the body.
The Signs of Periodontal Disease
If you notice any of the following in your pet, it is time to schedule an appointment for a dental check at Bayside Animal Hospital:
- Bad breath
- Broken teeth
- Missing teeth
- Trouble eating
- Bleeding or swollen gums
Regular dental cleanings and X-rays can help prevent serious infections in the teeth and gums. These visits allow us to inspect inside the teeth and above and below the gumlines to spot any issues early. As soon as we have a clear picture of your pet’s oral health, we perform thorough cleanings to remove plaque or tartar before they cause periodontal disease and other health issues. When needed we can extract diseased teeth to help prevent further damage.
Safe and Effective Pet Dental Care
Bayside Animal Hospital closely follows the recommendations of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA®) and performs all pet dental procedures under anesthesia. Anesthesia provides the safest environment in which to properly care for your pet’s teeth and gums.
We also perform thorough bloodwork before giving anesthesia to ensure the utmost safety for your pet during each stage of dental cleanings and surgical procedures.
