Your pet’s dental health plays a vital role in his general health and wellbeing.

Our pet clinic near San Jose is pleased to offer comprehensive pet dental care, services like cat and dog teeth cleaning and digital dental x-rays.

Signs of Dental Disease in Pets

Unlike humans, pets cannot simply tell you when they are feeling dental pain or discomfort. As a pet owner, it is important to recognize the most common signs of dental disease in cats and dogs.

  • As dental disease progresses, it can make eating and drinking uncomfortable for your pet. Any changes in your pet’s appetite that do not pass within one to two days should be brought to the attention of your veterinarian to determine the cause.
  • Your pet’s breath may not be minty fresh, but persistent bad breath is often a sign of tooth decay or periodontal disease.
  • Behaviors such as drooling, dropping food, pawing at or scratching the muzzle or ears, or chronic sneezing can all indicate changes in dental health that should be evaluated by your veterinarian.
  • Visible changes in your pet’s mouth or head, such as broken or missing teeth, bleeding from the mouth, a change in the symmetry of his muzzle, or abnormal discharge from the nose may be symptoms of severe dental disease.

Dental Facts About Your Pet

Understanding your pet’s dental needs is the best way to keep his mouth and his body healthy for life. If you are concerned about your pet’s dental health, Lincoln Avenue Veterinary Clinic offers complete pet dental care services to protect your pet’s health, comfort, and quality of life. You can reach us by phone to schedule a pet dental exam to see if dental care is needed or any other pet health care service in San Jose.

  • Dogs and cats have two sets of canine teeth; many owners never notice when puppies or kittens lose their initial set and receive permanent teeth. However, in some animals, this does not occur, causing crowding and changes in bite patterns that can affect your pet’s comfort and ability to eat.
  • Studies have shown that 80% of dogs and cats older than three years of age show signs of periodontal disease. Brushing at home with cat and dog toothpaste and dental cleanings at your pet clinic are the best ways to prevent this condition.
  • Broken teeth not only affect your pet’s appearance but causes significant pain and leave the damaged tooth susceptible to infection as well. A broken tooth should always be treated by your veterinarian at the nearest animal dental clinic in San Jose, as soon as you notice it.
