Dental Cleaning for Dogs and Cats

Dental disease is one of the most common diseases that we see in our pets, so at Reed Animal Hospital our main goal is prevention. Advanced dental disease can cause heart, liver, kidney, or lung complications, therefore we strive to take a proactive approach early, including dental hygiene, diet, and dental cleanings.

Signs of dental disease in pets:

Understanding Your Pet's Dental Needs

As a pet owner, you're responsible for taking charge of your pet's care. This involves understanding and looking after your pet's dental hygiene.

  • Gum Disease: According to a study by the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of gum disease by the age of three. This underlies a general lack of attention being paid to animal dental health.
  • Potential Consequences: What starts as mild inflammation of the gums can lead to a number of serious consequences. If left unaddressed, gum disease can cause advanced periodontitis or even tooth loss. Oral discomfort can affect an animal's willingness to eat, which can have further health ramifications
  • Preventative Care: As a pet owner, the best thing you can do is heed your veterinarian's dental recommendations. These recommendations may include a thorough dental cleaning once every one or two years.
  • Free Post-Dental Consultation: Reed Animal Hospital offers a free consult after dental cleaning with the dental technician to demonstrate preventative care and optimize prevention of dental disease.
