Teeth Cleaning and Extraction Services
You want the best for your pet, today and into the future. You probably already have activities such as walks in the park, plenty of attention and a healthy diet as part of your playbook.
What about dental care? To some, that might seem like a luxury, but that’s far from the case. Affordable Animal Hospital in Torrance offers a variety of services that can help you make sure your pet has a happy mouth, from dental cleaning to extraction.
Why Does It Matter?
While humans in countries such as the U.S. may increasingly view their teeth in cosmetic terms, focusing primarily on their whiteness and regularity, for your pet they are literally a matter of survival.
Depending on how much roving your pet does, that will likely relate more to meal time than to self-defense. When it comes to food, your pet’s teeth are the only option available for breaking up morsels and for chewing them enough to be swallowed. If teeth are too painful, worn down, or gum disease exists, this has a direct effect on nutrition.
Why You Need Our Help
A child can tell you when it has a toothache. Your pet can’t. The early stages of dental problems are not likely to be visible to you.
Regular examinations by one of our veterinarians can detect problems before they become serious, and if an issue has progressed far enough to require treatment, taking steps now can be critical in preventing the problem from becoming bigger.
Not If, But When
Over time, virtually every pet will develop some dental problems. According to some estimates, 85 percent of pets have gum disease once they are more than three years old.
Rather than waiting for the shoe to drop, you can keep your pet happy and avoid major expenses through routine dental and oral care.
