Have you ever taken a whiff of your pet’s breath and had it smell like something crawled in and died? While many people assume that bad breath is common for pets, that’s only because dental disease is so widespread! The majority of dogs and cats have some form of periodontal disease by the time they’re three years old, and this gets worse as they age. Dental care for Edmond pets is an integral part of their overall health. It’s more than just keeping teeth and gums clean, or keeping bad breath at bay. It’s also about staving off larger issues that can stem from periodontal disease.
Stoneridge Animal Hospital offers comprehensive pet dental care in the Oklahoma City area, including dental exams, cleanings, and evaluations of your pet’s teeth and mouth for risk factors for larger health issues. Some signs and symptoms that the veterinarian will look for include difficulty chewing, tooth or mouth sensitivity, and bad breath.

Comprehensive Dental

In addition to standard exams, imaging is often used to check mouth, tooth, and jaw structure for lesions and other issues. We will use these images and oral exams to put together a care plan that’s right for your budget and your pet’s needs. This will include cleaning the surface of the teeth, gum care, and cleaning below the gum line where tartar can build up. Generally, comprehensive cleaning and dental work is done under anesthesia to make the process safer for your pet, as well as to ease the anxiety that may come with dental care. With anesthesia, we can do a much more thorough cleaning and prevent your pet from swallowing that harmful plaque. We often request to perform pre-procedure bloodwork to ensure that your pet is generally healthy enough for the anesthesia.
