Cat And Dog Dental Care In Rochester In

Why Dogs and Cats Need Dental Care

Consistent dental care for pets is essential to prevent plaque and tartar buildup, which can harbor harmful bacteria and cause infections. Regular cleanings and check-ups allow us to detect early signs of periodontal disease, reducing risks to your pet’s overall health, including their heart, liver, and kidneys. We assess your pet’s dental health during routine exams and address any concerns. If needed, we recommend a dental cleaning to treat existing problems and enhance their oral health.

Recognizing Dental Issues in Pets

The American Veterinary Dental College suggests watching for these signs of dental problems:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Red, bleeding gums
  • Visible tartar accumulation
  • Reluctance to have their mouth touched
  • Excessive drooling or dropping food
  • Decreased appetite or weight loss
  • Facial swelling

Pets often hide discomfort and continue normal activities despite dental issues. Regular wellness checks are vital—our team is skilled in detecting subtle problems that might be missed at home.

Our Process for Cat and Dog Teeth Cleanings

Teeth cleanings at Fulton County Veterinary Clinic are comprehensive and meticulous. We aim to identify any underlying issues for thorough and effective treatment. Our teeth cleaning procedures include:

  • Detailed oral health assessments
  • Scaling and polishing of teeth
  • Advanced dental procedures
  • Diagnostic dental imaging for beneath the gum line
  • Treatments for periodontal disease and other dental conditions
  • Necessary tooth extractions (for dogs and cats only)

All teeth cleanings are performed under anesthesia to ensure your pet's comfort and safety, allowing us to provide the most thorough treatment possible.

We Recommend At-Home Dental Care for Your Pet

By three years old, many dogs and cats show early signs of periodontal disease. Regular home dental care can prevent these issues from developing. We recommend daily teeth brushing, though we understand it can be challenging to maintain. Our team is here to help you create an effective dental care plan tailored to your pet’s needs.

Rabbit and Guinea Pig Teeth Trimming

Rabbits and guinea pigs have continuously growing teeth, making regular trims essential to prevent overgrowth and associated health issues. While we do not perform extractions for these small animals, our trims help maintain their dental health.
