Pet Dental Care

All dogs and cats need dental care, and dental disease is one of the most common disease in dogs and cats.  Common signs of dental diseases in pets include:

  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
  • Your pet shies away from you when you touch the mouth area
  • Drooling or dropping food from the mouth.
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Loss of appetite or loss of weight

Professional Preventative Dental Care at Shiloh Veterinary Hospital

Our professional dental care includes complete ultrasonic scaling, root planning and polishing.  We place your pet under anesthesia and remove plaque and tartar using hand instruments and power scaling equipment.  We give your pet’s teeth a thorough ultrasonic cleaning and polishing.  We perform a comprehensive oral exam and check each tooth for mobility, fractures, malocclusion and periodontal disease. 

At Home Dental Care:

Brushing your pet’s teeth every day will reduce or eliminate plaque buildup.  Plaque, which is an accumulation of bacteria, will progress to periodontitis, which is characterized by pockets of chronic infection, oral pain, and severe infections.  Left untreated, it will eventually loosen and destroy the tooth and possibly lead to bone loss.  The infection under the gum line can also spread to the liver, kidneys and heart.

You can purchase veterinarian approved toothpaste, brushes, orvent sealant, CET chews and Hills dental chews at the store.

If your dog or cat exhibits any of the signs of dental disease, please call us at your earliest convenience to arrange for a dental exam for your pet.
