Pet Dental Month with our Katy Veterinarian
At Katy Area Veterinary Medical Group, our Katy veterinary team is dedicated to your pet's health and wellness. In addition to our routine veterinary care services, we're also happy to provide a number of pet dental care services to suit your pet's needs. If it's been more than a year since your pet's last dental exam and/or cleaning, there has never been a better time to schedule an appointment! After all, February is National Pet Dental Health Month.
The Importance of Pet Dental Care
Many pet owners don't understand the important of pet dental care, especially as it relates to a pet's overall health and wellness. For example, did you know that your pet's oral and dental health can have a direct link to your pet's heart health, just as it can in humans? Unfortunately, if your pet isn't being seen by an experienced veterinarian for routine cleanings and exams, there's a good chance your pet's health is suffering.
Specifically, a lack of dental care makes your pet more prone to a number of dental problems, including tooth decay and even gum disease. These conditions can be quite painful and uncomfortable for your pet, even if your pet isn't showing any obvious signs of discomfort. And over time, untreated tooth decay can even lead to dangerous infections, such as abscesses, that can create more serious problems for your pet's health.
Fortunately, by bringing your pet in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, we can remove plaque and other build-up from your pet's teeth to reduce the likelihood of decay, gum disease, and other common issues. You may also notice that your pet has fresher breath!
