Your pet needs dental care too!
Dental disease is common in pets and can be present at any age. Did you know periodontal disease is one of the most common dental problems a pet can face, with over 80% of dogs experiencing some stage of the disease by the age of three? Performing regular cleanings early on can save our pets from pain and issues later in life. Sploot offers a state-of-the-art dental suite and dental experts provide oral exams, cleanings, digital x-rays, extractions, surgery and any other care your pet may need.
Book your dog’s or cat’s comprehensive dental health appointment to ensure their overall wellbeing.
Ideal for cats and dogs who haven’t had a dental exam in a year or longer or are experiencing oral issues.
Why is dental care so important for cats and dogs?
It’s all about those three magic words: quality of life!
Just like a human’s quality of life would likely suffer without regular teeth brushing, teeth cleanings, and regular check-ups, a pet’s quality of life would likely suffer, too. And because, of course, cats and dogs cannot clean their own teeth, it’s even more important for pet parents to recognize the need for regular pet dental care.Common oral conditions and diseases pets can face are tooth decay, gum disease, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Without consistent dental care, plaque and tartar build on teeth and underneath gums - and without X-rays, the issues may escape a pet parent’s notice! Over time, these conditions can lead to inflammation, pain, infection, and tooth decay or loss; in more serious cases, plaque and bacteria accumulated in the teeth and gum area can enter a pet’s bloodstream, and affect organs like the heart, liver, and kidneys.The good news? Regular dental care can help prevent dental and oral disease, and just as importantly, can help prevent pain and discomfort for your beloved furry family member!
