Pet Dental Care
Most pet owners do not fully understand the importance of pet dental care. Just as a good dental health foundation is important for humans, it is also important in pets. This is why Memorial Town and Country Animal Clinic in Houston makes a point to offer full-service pet dental health solutions on-site. We want to encourage you to take your pet’s dental health as seriously as you do your own. This includes brushing teeth, dental health screenings, check-ups, and more.
Why Is Pet Dental Care So Important?
Pets explore the world with their mouths. They are perpetual toddlers in this sense. They lack fingers and opposable thumbs to feel the world around them, so they feel it with their mouths. They lick, they taste, and they bite to get a feel for things. It’s part of their nature. Unfortunately, this can lead to some serious health problems as well as discomfort for your pet.
When their teeth and gums are in pain due to cavities, infections, inflammation, and other problems, it can disrupt the way your pet interacts with the world around them. This is just one of many potential pet dental issues.
Other reasons to invest in your pet’s dental health include the following:
- Poor dental health can lead to organ failure, including heart failure. This is the result of chronic inflammation and the workload constant infections place the animal’s organs.
- When your pet’s mouth hurts, they might not be as willing or even able to eat certain foods. This can lead to malnutrition. This problem is especially common in older pets.
- Pain. Infected teeth hurt. More importantly, your pet can’t tell you that it hurts or where it hurts. You must be proactive in this regard with routine dental care for your pet.
Your pet is always right there by your side to offer its steadfast love and affection. Repay that kindness by taking outstanding care of your pet’s health today and as your pet ages. This includes its dental health through a qualified veterinarian. Your pet’s dental health is too important to ignore.
