At our animal hospital, we supply pet dental care to our patients, including both small animal and large animal dental care. We help both house pets and farm animals achieve optimal oral health. Keep in mind that even if you're brushing your pet's teeth regularly, he could still benefit from routine dental visits with us at Country Vet Service, serving Farmington, AR, and the nearby region. We have a veterinarian serving Prairie Grove, AR, Lincoln, AR, Bentonville, AR, Little Flock, AR, and the surrounding areas.
While pets can get cavities, it's uncommon. However, even with regular brushing, your pet's mouth can have bacteria. It remains inside the mouth and irritates his gumline. It can cause gum inflammation, pain, bad breath, and even tooth loss in the more extreme cases.
Both a large animal and a small animal can develop oral health issues, and it's a concern for both house pets and farm animals.
When you bring your animal in for a routine health examination, we can also provide him or her with pet dental. You may also come to our office if your pet is having a dental problem.
During a routine dental appointment, our veterinarian will evaluate your pet's teeth and gums and look for any signs of a problem. Besides gingivitis, or in the later stage gum disease, a pet could also have an abscess, which is when a pocket of infection develops near the tooth root. It could require a root canal.
We'll provide a routine cleaning, which will remove plaque and debris from on and in between the teeth. We even clean along the gumline to remove any bacteria that could cause gum disease.
If your pet is having an oral health issue, we can address it. Sometimes, that means removing the tooth so it no longer bothers your pet.
Why Get Pet Dental Care
An oral health problem with your pet could lead to pain and discomfort, and you don't want your furry friend to have to endure that. Not to mention, the pain and other symptoms of an oral health issue could lead to your pet not being able to eat as he or she should. This can lead to a nutrient deficiency and weight loss. Both of which can negatively affect your pet. ;
When it comes to gum disease, it’s better to prevent it because once it reaches that point, it requires continuous management to prevent it from worsening.
