A Routine Teeth Cleaning is Crucial For Your Pet
Loose or misaligned dog teeth can cause your pet a great deal of discomfort. Especially when trying to eat. Loose teeth in an adult dog could have an underlying factor – gum disease, or trauma to the mouth. A periodontal disease can cause symptoms of brown tartar on the teeth, leaving spots of blood, or if the gums look inflamed or sore. A routine professional cleaning can help to hinder the process, while still providing a dental care regime at home.
We Look Forward To Helping Your Dogs, Cats and Other Companions
Tooth trauma can be caused from chew toys that are too hard, bones, tugging games or too-rough play. A cracked or broken tooth can lead to decay and bacteria or disease.
