Pet Dental Care
Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well.
Pet Dental Care at North Seattle Veterinary Clinic
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 get in touch with our team, and we’ll be happy to help.
In many cases, dental disease in dogs and cats progresses to a point where teeth need to be extracted or treated with advanced dental techniques. The North Seattle Veterinary Clinic offers comprehensive dental surgical services but may also elect to refer to a board-certified veterinary dentist when the circumstances require it.
We are proud that we have the most up-to-date equipment to treat dental disease, including digital dental x-rays. This allows us to detect any disease beneath the gum line that we would not be able to see otherwise. We can often see undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more, thanks to dental radiographs.
Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth?
Our goal is to provide the best possible care and education so that your furry loved ones may enjoy a long happy life with you.
We consider you and your pets family and look forward to meeting you.
