Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your animal friend due to bad breath?

Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that all pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your pet is in need of dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, these bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life. The good news is, with the support and guidance of Creature Comforts Animal Hospital, you can prevent all of this.

Our professional dentistry services are designed to provide all the care and attention needed for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We offer both routine, preventative care to keep plaque and tartar at bay, as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. Whether you’re stopping in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered.   All dental cleanings include full mouth radiographs just like your dentist would do for you.   Much of the dental disease your pet could be suffering from is below the gum line and not visible without radiographs.  We want to make sure if your pet has any painful disease below the surface we find and fix it.  Dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic, intravenous catheter and fluids, and constant monitoring to ensure patient safety.   Your pet’s well-being during anesthetic procedures is our top priority.  Our monitoring protocol goes above and beyond the normal standard of care.

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Discolored teeth
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your animal friend is exhibiting any of these things, it’s time to schedule an exam. We can determine what the problem is and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one.

In addition to our professional dental care, we’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your pet’s teeth stay healthy and clean year-round. In between annual cleanings, it’s important to prevent plaque and tartar accumulation.  Brushing your companion’s teeth daily is great to do if possible.   Our experienced staff would be happy to offer demonstrations of the proper technique.  We realize for many pet parents brushing daily is not practical.  We can also give advice on various dental health products you can use to keep your pet’s teeth as healthy as possible between annual cleanings.  We can even apply a barrier sealant after your pet’s cleaning that will prevent tartar and plaque under the gum line, where it does the most damage, for 6 full months.  Together we can develop a plan that works for both you and your pet.

 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your best friend once again. The professional dental services at Creature Comforts Animal Hospital can help get you there! Call today!

      Came in as a walk in and they were pretty quick to get to Stout. He is in for X-rays now and maybe bloodwork. They asked what my favorite candy bar was and I put all! The front desk girl brought a variety 😀👉🏻.

      This was our 1st experience with CCAH. What can I tell you? This is the first time since we have been in LV that we feel like we mattered, our fur babies mattered. The staff is WONDERFUL. Dr. Perry is AMAZING. Eragon & Zephyr went in to be neutered. They got their shots updated, blood work, exam and then hea told us his surgery time also. He called us after the boys were done and in recovery. When we picked up the boys then then told us everything. How to care for them. I can not give them a five star rating for they truly deserve more than that. We are excited to have a place for our pets to go to. We will be bringing the girls next. They take care of dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, exoctics; just not horses..

      I took advantage of CREATURE COMFORTS free initial exam for my great Dane. They all were most gracious with their time. The doc sat down in the exam room with me and had a conversation about Lucky....I feel very comfortable with the staff and Dr.Tompkins. I've had great Danes for 50 years. Doc was happy to "discuss" care for lucky with me instead of "dictating" a plan. She took my experience to heart and nodded appropriately to the knowledge "I bring to the table." Their free initial exam came right when I was actively looking for a new vet. If I hadn't been looking I would have passed on the offer. Timing was just great, but even if you aren't looking for a new doctor, I recommend you meet & greet with them. I'm way down in Henderson, but I like them so much I will make the drive. After 50 years you can imagine how "jaded" I am about health care for my great danes.....CREATURE COMFORTS happily exceeded my expectations!🐕👌🐶
