February is Pet Dental Month in Fairfield CAfairfield pet dental

February is pet dental month! At this time of year, we do our best to educate homeowners about the importance of pet oral hygiene and Fairfield pet dental care. Dental diseases can lead to pain and infection, which can negatively impact your pet's quality of life. As a pet owner, it's important for you to protect your pet from dental disease. Knowing the symptoms of dental disease and how to prevent this from happening can help you care for your pet.

Know the Symptoms of Pet Dental Disease

The symptoms of pet dental disease include:

  • Bad breath.
  • Red, inflamed, bleeding gums.
  • Discolorations on the teeth and gums.
  • Loose, cracked or missing teeth.

If your pet displays any of these symptoms, contact your pet's veterinarian as soon as possible.

Get Your Pet Dental Care in Fairfield

As your pet's veterinarian in Fairfield, we offer the following pet dental services for our patients:

  • Dental examinations. We'll examine your pet's teeth for plaque buildup and periodontal disease. If we find evidence that your pet is suffering from periodontal disease or that your pet has plaque buildup, we'll recommend treatment for your pet.
  • Pet teeth cleaning. Pet teeth cleaning can eliminate bad breath in pets and remove plaque buildup. After your pet's teeth are cleaned, we'll polish the enamel to prevent food from sticking to the enamel after meals.
  • Cavity filling. Pets who get cavities need to get fillings, just like people. We offer cavity filling services to protect your pet from tooth decay.
  • Tooth extractions. Tooth extractions can help your pet if he or she is suffering from a tooth infection.
