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!

      Very super nice and caring staff. We went to our local pet store and they referred us to them since our breaded dragon was not eating and acting his normal self. Gave them a call and they sneaked us in just before closing today. They looked at him and assisted us what could be wrong and to do xyz for the next couple days. Becuase we were referred they did not charge us for the exam. The doctor and staff listened and were genuine. Will definitely refer people to this place

      They were wonderful in taking care of my ferret Smokey. Unfortunately my cat Lil Bit had to be put down there a few days ago. They were so great in doing what they could for her and then letting me know when it was time to say goodbye instead of running up vet costs. They made saying goodbye easy possible. I will continue to use them for my pet care!

      We trust only Creature Comforts with our fur babies and have for 13 years. They have welcomed new members and helped us say our farewells also. I can't say enough. Good things about the WHOLE office..from the moment you walk in ..the assistance..doctors and those who are behind the doors. We usually see Dr Paul..but she was with another situation..first time seeing Dr Perry..under such a dramatic situation..I have to give a shout out to Dr. PERRY for remaining calm and providing excellent care to our Leia after getting attacked by 2 dogs. He was calm.with very .nervous parents..he explained every step and every possible steps ..the follow ups were taken cautiously ..it was comforting to have Dr Paul check in with us..I'm happy to say Dr Perry gave our Leia "The Out of the woods" and she is her happy and healthy self. If you want great care for your beloved furry family this the place to go..
