Our veterinarians and the rest of our team welcome you to Pasquotank Animal Hospital in Elizabeth City, NC. Raising and caring for our pets is a big responsibility and one that should not be taken lightly. Our animal hospital not only cares for the most common and not so common pet health issues, but we are also able to take care of your animal’s pet dentistry issues as well.
Pet Dental Care
Your pet is an important part of your family. He can benefit from a yearly checkup just as any family member would. Dental cleaning and care are an important part of his exam. If there are any eating or chewing issues, a veterinarian on our team would need to know about these. If there is a loss of appetite or weight loss be sure to a veterinarian this as well. These could also signify a pet dental issue. If you have difficulty remembering these issues, be sure to keep a list and write them down. It could help the veterinary doctor to determine the cause of these issues. To learn more about your pet’s health explore our website for articles that can keep you informed on how best to keep your pet healthy. Our pets are important to us and we need to be sure that we are doing what we can do for them in return for their faithfulness.
The Importance of Good Dental Health
Good dental care is important for eating and eating is important to stay alive. Pets who have dental pain may begin to lose appetite which can cause a host of other problems, such as excessive weight loss and nutritional deficiencies. If a dental disease progresses too much and enters the jaw, the infection could spread into your pet’s blood stream which could endanger his life. At this point, it is possible that only extreme, painful, and expensive procedures may be able to remedy this situation. Do not let this happen. Get your pet’s teeth checked and treated, if necessary, to avoid all of this in the first place. It can save you a lot of money, and your pet a lot of pain, in the long run.
