In recognition of February being “Pet Dental Health Month”, let’s talk about your pet’s pearly whites! Some people are unaware that their pets can actually have some of the same dental problems that they may experience. These problems include, but are not limited to: broken teeth and roots, periodontal disease, cysts or tumors in the mouth, abscesses or infected teeth, misalignment of the bite, broken jaw, etc.
Like human, dogs have 2 sets of teeth. There are 28 baby or primary teeth and 42 adult or permanent teeth…
Anesthesia-free pet dentistry (AFD) has become a popular topic amongst many animal owners however it is important to note that most (if not all) veterinarians strongly advise against this procedure due to its ineffectiveness and inability to detect, treat, or prevent numerous dental health issues.
As pet owners, we want to provide the best possible care for our pets, and regular oral health check ups are just as important for animals as they are for humans.
