Dentistry

Is your furry friend’s mouth as healthy as it could be?

When is the last time you visited the dentist? What about your pet? Companion animals need dental care just as much as we do. In fact, without routine care, your four-legged family member could end up with more than just bad breath. Poor oral health can lead to everything from painful gums and tooth loss to dental disease and a host of other serious medical conditions. The good news is, this can all be prevented through our professional Naperville pet dental services.

A Healthy Smile for Life

Our Bolingbrook vet care team is skilled in both routine as well as advanced oral health care for dogs and cats. Our goal is to take a proactive approach, tackling plaque and keeping tartar at bay. Should a dental problem arise for your pet, we’re prepared to address it as quickly and effectively as possible. Whether it’s an annual exam, a thorough cleaning or a complex oral surgery, you can count on us. All of our dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic, which we closely monitor to ensure patient safety.

Signs of an Oral Health Problem

Dental disease is one of the most common ailments in companion animals. The earlier we are able to diagnose the problem, the better the outcome. Some of the signs and symptoms to watch for include:

  • 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 you notice any of these things, it’s time to schedule an appointment with your trusted Naperville / Bolingbrook area vet. We’ll get to the bottom of the problem and develop the best course of treatment available.

A Team Effort

In addition to professional dental care, we also need your help to keep your loved one’s mouth clean, healthy and disease-free. As such, we’d be happy to show you the proper techniques for brushing your pet’s teeth in between annual cleanings. We may also recommend certain products that will help support your companion’s year-round dental health.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close-up snuggles with your furry family member. Our comprehensive Naperville and Bolingbrook dental services will help make that possible once again!
