Protect Your Pet’s Oral Health
Just like you, your pet’s oral health impacts the rest of their health, which is why you need to schedule regular dental care. Even if their teeth look clean, bacteria could be growing where you can’t see — below the gum line. This can lead to damage in your pet’s teeth, gums, and more. We use the tools and procedures that will not only thoroughly clean your pet’s teeth, but will also eliminate tartar and plaque to protect them from various dental problems. Give your pet the dental care they need with superior dental care services from Mercy Animal Hospital in Edmonton. Contact us today to book your appointment.

As a pet owner, there are a number of things you can do to promote good oral health in your pet. While brushing your pet’s teeth may be an obvious first step, it may not be the easiest depending on your pet’s behavior or personality. If brushing your pet’s teeth is a non-starter, be sure to let us know, and one of the trained veterinary technicians at Mercy Animal Hospital can perform this simple procedure in our office. There are several other things you can do to promote good oral health for your fur baby, including:
Water additives — helps your pet maintain fresh breath and breaks up plaque
Dental chews — breaks up plaque and cleans your pet’s teeth
Dental cleaning chew toys — cleans your pet’s teeth as he or she chews on the toy
When you schedule a dental cleaning for your pet, we will perform a dental exam to check for signs of disease and plaque. Based on our findings, we might recommend teeth cleaning or another treatment. A pet’s teeth cleaning is similar to what you experience at the dentist. We will scrape off any plaque and polish the enamel. In situations where a tooth cannot be saved, we can perform an extraction. This procedure will eliminate infection and protect the health of their mouth.
