Dental health is crucial to your pets overall health. At Ottawa Veterinary Hospital, we suggest annual or semi examinations and cleanings to prevent, diagnose, and treat dental disease. Dr. Hoagland will assess the health of your pet’s teeth and gums, while trying to find signs of inflammation, pain, or abnormal masses.
Your pet is not able to convey the distress and pain of dental disease. Frequent symptoms include: bad breath, excessive drooling, difficulty chewing, yellow or brown plaque around the teeth or close to the gum line, diminished appetite, teeth chattering, weight loss, coughing and nasal discharge, and irritability.
Dental cleanings do a lot more than simply keep your pet’s teeth glistening and white. Poor dental health makes it possible for bacteria to accumulate and spread to critical bodily systems, which might result in serious conditions like kidney and heart failure, liver damage, along with a weak immune system.
General anesthesia is needed for dental cleanings. This is to assure your pet’s comfort and security! Pre- surgical blood work is strongly suggested to make certain that your pet can deal with the consequences of anesthesia. At Ottawa Veterinary Hospital, we all know that any procedure could be stressful. We assure you your pet is in good hands. Our highly-trained group of veterinary professionals can rigorously track your pet’s vitals from start to finish.
