The Importance of Pet Dental Care

Our Largo veterinarian can’t stress enough just how important it is to care about your animal’s oral health. For one thing, regular pet dental vet visits and cleanings can actually save you money, since our team can prevent dental issues from developing (and implement earlier treatment if issues do arise). Plus, dogs and cats with healthy teeth and gums live longer, often by a factor of years!

So, what type of ailments will a veterinarian in Largo FL be looking for? Many of the same ones which can affect humans, including:

  • Periodontal (gum) disease
  • Tooth abscess (infection)
  • Tooth fracture
  • Extra or impacted teeth
  • Oral cysts and tumors
  • Jawbone fractures and malocclusions

Services by our Largo Vet Staff

It’s important to schedule an annual pet dental visit with our Largo vet team for your beloved companion, even if you don’t notice anything wrong with your pet’s mouth and teeth. Many dental diseases can present with no symptoms at all! Of course, if you do notice any symptoms (such as foul breath, missing or loose teeth, bleeding gums, or difficulty chewing or eating) then you call our team right away.

Our experienced staff offers several treatments and techniques to take care of any dental health issues for your pet and optimize your pet’s overall health and comfort, including:

  • Thorough examination, cleaning, polishing, and removal of plaque and tartar in all those hard to reach places
  • Teeth Extractions
  • Root canals

We perform these services with your animal under anesthesia—not only is it far more humane, but it also allows us to do our job more thoroughly. Accordingly, we’ll ask that your animal is fasted prior to its next dental exam visit. We’ll also be sure to educate you on our findings and offer you tips and tools for brushing your pet’s teeth at home in-between visits.
