How many of you get close enough to your best friend to occasionally think man you have bad breath?  That bad smell isn’t the only thing you should be concerned with. It is bad for your pet’s health to have all that plaque and tartar building up on their teeth.  Tartar build up allows the bacteria trapped there direct access to your pets blood stream via their inflamed gums.  Once in the blood the bacteria seed themselves throughout the body but one of the most concerning places they lodge are the heart valves.  This causes a condition known as endocarditis which can lead to further heart damage and heart murmur development.  If your pet already has a heart murmur present it may be necessary to place them on heart medication and antibiotics prior to performing a dental cleaning so that the heart can be functioning at its best prior to anesthesia.

Blood work is recommended prior to any anesthetic procedure, but is especially important in the case of an older pet that may already be having other health problems.  Blood work can indicate problems the pet may be having that a physical exam or their daily behaviors are not indicating.  Underlying problems such as diabetes, kidney and liver disease, increased white count due to infection, and anemia are just a few of the most common problems found in older animals when they may not be showing any outward clinical signs.

It should also be noted that dental disease is not always an older pet problem.  Some younger pets should have teeth cleanings too.  Breeds such as Yorkies, Shit tzus, Chihuahuas, and other toy breeds are prone to having poor dental health and will most likely require dental care much sooner than other breeds.  Your veterinarian should check your pet’s oral health every time you come in for a routine yearly examination and recommend teeth cleaning when it is appropriate.

A routine dental at our clinic involves scaling the teeth with an ultrasonic scaler, removing any teeth that are abscessed, broken, or dead, and polishing the teeth with a prophy just like at your dentist's office.  Sealing the teeth with a barrier sealant is also recommended to prolong the time in between dental cleanings.  Once the teeth are clean it is much easier to do some preventive measures and see that you are in fact preventing the build up from occurring as fast as it would normally were you not doing anything.

February is National Pet Dental Health month and most veterinary clinics honor this in some way.  Howland Mobile Veterinary Service will be offering 10% off all dental services and products in the month of February.  I look forward to taking care of your pet’s dental health needs.

Just like adults, children also need their teeth to be taken care of and as early as children develop all of their teeth, they need to visit children's dentists so that the dentists can have a look at the teeth of their young patients. Finding a good dentist in Fountain Valley, CA that caters to the needs of children is easy but if you happen to live in an area where no such dentist exist, then there are other types of dentists that can cater to your child's needs.

Dentists are experts when it comes to care of the oral area including the teeth, gums, and jaw. Most of the time, an individual will only seek the help of a dentist if dental problems have worsened. But it should not work this way. It is highly suggested to see a dentist for regular dental and oral checkups. Typically, a dentist should have the right tools, skills and trainings in dealing with any dental issues.

Many low quality dry dog food manufacturers have greatly reduced the amount of meat they originally used to make their product and have since replaced it with less costly cereal, grain, and other much cheaper filler ingredients like peanut shells, cotton hulls, feathers, etc. Most of these have no nutritional value for canines at all. They will only make your dog feel full and can even be quite harmful to your best friend. Yet, there are many unscrupulous dry dog food manufacturers who use them anyway.

Dental services are usually performed in the dental office and can cover a wide variety of dental treatments. Today dental services can be as simple as cleaning the teeth or as complicated as putting someone to sleep in order to do an extensive amount of dental work in less time.
