Dental Care

 

Pet owners are often surprised to learn that oral disease is the most common problem affecting cats and dogs. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of felines and 80% of canines exhibit symptoms by the time they turn 3 years old. If left untreated, infections in the mouth can cause pain and may spread through a pet's bloodstream, potentially causing severe damage to the kidneys, liver, and heart.


At Sharon Lakes Animal Hospital, we work closely with our clients to promote good oral health in our pet patients. At each wellness appointment, our veterinarians will examine your pet's mouth, teeth, and gums to ensure that all is well. In between exams, if a pet patient is brought in to see us because he or she is not eating, the mouth is one of the first areas we will check. A fractured tooth or some other painful dental condition could be the cause.
