Dental Care

Here at Wolf Creek Veterinary Clinic, we are pleased to offer dental services to our clients.

Dental care is often overlooked, though it is very important. Bad dental disease can lead to many health problems, including heart, liver, and kidney disease because it travels through the bloodstream. Even scarier is that the disease affects 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over the age of three.

Still, most pet owners do not realize how important good dental care is. There are many ways to help improve your pets’ dental health. Dogs need their teeth brushed too! Dental chews are also helpful against the disease. Our dog dentists are trained in dog teeth cleaning and can help show you the proper way to clean your dog’s teeth.

Routine examinations by your veterinarian are very important for good dental health. Your pets may need a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia. It is the very best way to clean their teeth. We can reach areas beneath the gums that owners are unable to reach.

Signs of Dental Disease in Pets

Signs of dental disease include discolored teeth, bad breath, and even difficulty eating. Some pets get the disease so severely that their mouths bleed. If you notice any of these symptoms, you need to schedule an examination as soon as possible.
