McCordsville Veterinary Hospital
Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team and we’ll be happy to help.
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease. In fact, most pet parents are not aware their pet is dealing with dental issues.
Every examination at McCordsville Veterinary Hospital includes an oral examination to assess the teeth and gums for dental disease. We are equipped to perform anesthetic dental cleanings, as well as digital dental x-rays to assess for periodontal disease, undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more. We chart all teeth evaluating for any periodontal pockets, increased mobility, and gum recession.
