Canines & Their Canine (Teeth) – Providing the Best New Orleans Pet Dentistry

Every morning you wake up, greet your pet, get dressed, eat breakfast and brush your teeth. Before you to go to sleep at night, you take a shower, brush your hair and brush your teeth. Once or twice a year you visit the dentist for a checkup. Whether searching for cavities or going in for a teeth cleaning, you take care of yourself. You should do the same for your pet.

The only issue is, our pets can’t brush their teeth by themselves, so it is an owner’s responsibility to care for their pet. Pet dentistry is one of the more ignored aspects of pet care but is also one of the most important. Pet owners rarely, if ever, seek dental care for their furry family member and the consequences of this negligence can be serious.

Some of the more common issues in pet dental care include bad breath, discolored teeth, loose/broken teeth or pain when using toys or eating. These issues may seem minor but they can take away from the general well-being and comfort of your pet. Pet dentistry and dental examinations are an important part of caring for your pet’s overall health. Most signs of dental diseases develop quickly so the best way to combat that development is to have regular check ups and perform proper dental hygiene. Ignoring minor aspects of pet care can lead to larger and more expensive problems down the road. Remember that minor dental issues can become major issues happening inside your pet’s internal organs including heart, liver, kidney and gum disease.
