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!

      My partner and I just started taking our fur family due to bad experiences elsewhere. We have been helped by 3 different vets and their respective nurses/assistants and I cannot say enough of their genuine kindness and concern for our animals. For many our dogs and cats are our “kids” and their health and wellness is paramount. Everyone here seems to understand that. They are patient and listen to you without interrupting and provide you with the information you need to care for you pet. I wish I could remember everyone’s name, because they all deserve recognition. We saw a lovely vet soon to go on maternity leave on October 27th for our new kittyand her nurse was unbelievable. We came back on the 28th with the other 2 kitties. The vet on duty, her nurse, and the tech were so kind with our feral kitty. Nearly made me cry. Came back today with my dog for a follow up on treatment from another vet. We saw Dr. Gorman and her nurse Jen and a trainee Giselle. They were phenomenal! Please could you check who was working on all these days? I would like all of them to be recognized for their kindness! Thank you so much!

      Clean and friendly clinic. The doctors and staff are funny and friendly. Usually no problem getting an appointment on the same day. I like the fact that this is almost an all female staff (doctors that is) it seems to put my critters more at ease when they have to go. Some of the doctors see more than just dogs and cats, they see all kinds of critters! I have dogs and parrots and it's good to know that they are in good hands. Over all, I pretty much love the place!
