Is bad breath making it difficult to get close to your pet?

Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that pet parents must simply learn to live with. In fact, it’s likely a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist. 

Without adequate care and attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your furry friend’s life. 

Thankfully, with the right support, this can all be prevented.

The professional dentistry services at Complete Care Hospital for Pets include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. 

Common signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food 
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your pet is exhibiting any of these signs, it’s time to book a dental exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis. We’ll also show you techniques you can use to help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round. 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close-up cuddles with your furry friend. The comprehensive dental services at Complete Care Hospital can help get you there!
