How Important is Dental Cleaning for Dogs

Should You Visit the Veterinarian for Your Pet’s Dental Care?

Veterinarians can help you care for your pet’s teeth and gums. We focus on your pet’s overall health. A big part of that is dental care. In fact, we at The Brentwood Animal Hospital in Pensacola celebrate Pet Dental Month every February and September. Our staff is ready to help you with any pet dental related questions and issues you may have.

Dogs Need Proper Dental Care

When you have a toothache, you see your dentist and get it fixed. Your dog can’t run to the office and get a checkup himself. You need to provide that for him. Dogs are happy, loyal friends that rely on you to keep them healthy. Bringing your furry friend to the animal hospital to get his teeth checked and cleaned will lead to a happier, healthier life for your best buddy. Beneath his cheerful demeanor, there are many problems he can encounter with his teeth and gum health. A good veterinarian can diagnose and fix those dental issues.

Periodontal disease can wreak havoc on your pet. It starts with bacteria attacking your pet’s teeth at the gum line, causing inflammation that can loosen and eventually cause your dog’s teeth to start falling out. Let our veterinarian, Dr. Todd Burnett, do a checkup to ensure that periodontal disease doesn’t impact your pet’s overall health.

The Brentwood Animal Hospital in Pensacola is Open for Pet Dental Exams

Bring your dog in and let us give him a thorough dental exam. We recommend doing this annually, and your furry friend will appreciate the happiness that comes with a healthy mouth. In some cases, our older four-legged friends may need to be seen more often, as they tend to have more dental issues. Visit us in February and September to celebrate Pet Dental Month with us and take advantage of our 10% discount for pet dental cleanings. We look forward to seeing you and your pets on your next visit to The Brentwood Animal Hospital in Pensacola.
