Veterinary Dentistry

Though we may not think about it, our dogs & cats benefit from the same kind of dental care that humans enjoy.  Our furry friends suffer from the same oral problems and, though you can’t often tell, the same discomfort.

Plaque & tartar is the most common oral disease in pets, and forms on the teeth when they’re not kept clean.  In addition to using products that are effective in controlling plaque and tartar development, frequent removal of plaque & tartar is crucial.

Signs of oral disease in your pet include:

  • Bad breath
  • Bleeding
  • Loose or discolored teeth
  • Excessive drooling
  • Cringing when you touch the animal’s mouth area
  • Loss of appetite

Foothills Animal Hospital provides a full range of veterinary dental care for your pet.  If your companion shows any of the above symptoms, we can help!  Call for an appointment
