Pet Dental Care

Dental care for your pet’s teeth increases the quality of life of your pet!

Did you know that pets need dental care too? Dental disease is one of the most common, but preventable, problems in dogs and cats. Untreated dental disease compromises the quality of your pet’s life by causing pain, infection, tooth loss and potential infection to other organ systems.

Our Dental Care for Pets

At Goose Creek Pet Hospital, our dental care process begins with a thorough oral examination and review the history of your pet's teeth and mouth. After sedating your pet, we examine each tooth for mobility, fractures, malocclusion and periodontal disease. We then remove plaque and tartar using hand instruments, and follow that up with a thorough ultrasonic cleaning and polishing. Your pet will go home the same day with clean teeth and good smelling breath!

Signs of Dental Disease in your Pet

If your pet is experiencing any of these signs, please contact us to schedule a dental appointment for your pet.

  • Bad breath
  • Yellow, brown or discolored teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Red, inflamed gums
  • Swollen mouth, jaws or gums
  • Pain when eating
  • Abnormal chewing or licking
  • Reduced appetite
  • Doesn't play with chew toys as often
  • Weight loss

At Home Dental Care

We provide Professional Cleaning Services and Advanced Dental Care, but it’s important to not overlook at-home dental care. After having your pet’s teeth professionally cleaned and looked over, we highly recommend instilling a regular teeth-cleaning schedule for your dog or cat at home. It’s a simple process and should only take a few minutes every day. However, sometimes brushing your pet's teeth is not always possible, in these cases we recommend our prescription dental chews. And again just like humans, daily teeth brushing or dental chews reduces plaque and tartar and lessens the chance of your pet developing dental disease like gingivitis and periodontitis.

If your pet’s teeth are not cleaned daily via brushing or dental chews, plaque (which is a buildup of bacteria) will lead to periodontitis. Periodontal disease is where pockets of severe and painful infections develop within the mouth. Not treated, it can lead tooth decay, bone loss and organ damage.

If you have any questions about your pet’s dental health or dental home care, please ask us how we can assist you in providing oral care for your pet.
