An often over-looked, but critical part of your pet’s overall health care is dental care. A pet with an unhealthy mouth is an unhealthy pet. Years ago, we assumed that dogs had dirty, stained teeth and that their breath smelled, ‘doggy’. Today, it is a known fact that a healthy mouth means clean, tartar-free teeth and a pleasant mouth odor. Animals with oral disease have mouth pain and they are more likely to suffer from diseases related to mouth bacteria.
Routine cleanings are needed to maintain the overall health of your pet. Additionally, a pet with dental disease is not only in pain, but is also at risk of developing serious diseases of the entire body. Delaware Valley Veterinary Hospital is pleased to provide routine care of your pet’s teeth and to treat diseases of the mouth, gums, and teeth.
