Holistic Animal Healing Clinic And The Importance of Dental Hygiene
Good dental hygiene isn't for people only! While we make it an integral part of our daily routine, pets need clean teeth too. The AVMA earmarks each February as pet dental awareness month. However, we urge you to make 'toofie' (or teeth!) checks on a regular basis for your precious pet. Dr. Downey always makes that part of her regular examination.
Clean teeth means healthy gums and a healthier animal overall. If you've noticed Fluffy's breath is less than sweet, it may be a sign of dental disease. Untreated dental infections can be the cause of a painful mouth and equally important can lead to more serious systemic conditions in the heart, kidneys and other organs.
So make bad breath in dogs and cats a thing of the past and keep them healthy! If you have concerns, call us today at 603-772-7387 to schedule an appointment.
Note: We highly recommend a pre-anthestic screen for all dental patients. New clients need to schedule an office appointment for a complete exam before scheduling a dental.
