Plaque, tartar, and bacteria in the mouth may lead to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease not only leads to bad breath, it can also result in painful infections, tooth loss and other serious, even life-threatening health conditions. It can spread through the bloodstream to the heart, liver, and kidneys, and shorten your pet's life. Since gum disease increases the risk for other, more serious health conditions that we've listed, daily home care in conjunction with annual veterinary dental exams and cleanings are essential.
Bad breath isn't just unpleasant, it can be unhealthy!
The AVMA recommends daily brushing of your pet's teeth and regular dental checkups. In fact, studies indicate that daily home brushing and regular dental care may add as much as five years to your pet's life!
During your pet's annual examination, we checks your pet's dental health and will recommend a dental cleaning if necessary, as well as give you advice on how to maintain your dog or cat's good oral health. But if you notice plaque and tartar build-up, that your pet has difficulty chewing, has bad breath, or if you have any other oral concerns, schedule an appointment to see your veterinarian right away. Good oral health is a key factor in your pet's overall wellness!
In addition to regular scheduled teeth cleanings, veterinarians provide comprehensive dental care. Some of the pet dental services provided at Tracy Animal Hospital can include:
We believe that good dental hygiene in our pets is not just about treating problems - it is about good prevention. It starts with care at home!

Hi there! Thanks for bringing some awareness around dental health. I was getting worried about Nero's (my Spanish water dog) bad breath and tartar so I decided to do some research (that's how I ended up here).

This morning, my girlfriend told me she's worried about her dog's oral health since she noticed how her gums look swollen. I'm glad you explained how we'd identify a dental illness in a dog's teeth, so I'll call my girlfriend right now and suggest she starts looking for a vet's help. I'm grateful for your tips on how a dental disease could lead to tooth removal.

It's great that you elaborated that disease could be prevented when you provide a toothbrushing routine for your pet. My brother thinks his pet has a dental problem because she is not eating properly. He asked if I had any thoughts on what would be the best option to prevent problems. I appreciate your explanation about the importance of consultation. I'll tell him he can consult a trusted veterinarian as they can provide proper treatment.

Thank you for mentioning that research suggests that daily home brushing and proper dental care may extend your pet's life by up to five years. My daughter recently got a pet for the first time. She observes that her pet's gums are swollen. I'll advise her to have a dental exam and oral surgery.
