Is bad breath driving a wedge between you and your pet?

Despite what you may have heard, stinky breath isn’t something that pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, to the contrary – it’s likely a red flag that your pet could use a visit to the dentist. 

Without proper care and attention, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and lead to a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life. 

The good news is, with the right approach, this can all be prevented.

The professional dentistry services at Animal Care of Oradell include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. 

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food 
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your pet is showing any of these signs, it’s time to book an appointment. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the chances of a positive prognosis. We’ll also show you techniques you can use at home to keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round. 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Animal Care of Oradell can help get you there!
