Dental Care for Dogs

Dental disease is the most common disease diagnosed at Coxwell Animal Clinic. As young adults, most dogs begin to show signs of dental disease. This can consist of bad breath, tartar, red and swollen gums, dropping food, drooling, pain. If these clinical signs are seen, we recommend your dog come in for an examination. At Coxwell Animal Clinic, we provide a full range of dental care to help your dog!

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?

We provide complimentary dental exams all-year-round. These dental exams are performed by a technician or a veterinarian to assess the level of periodontal disease present. If periodontal disease is present, we will recommend a dental plan for your dog. This may consist of a diet recommendation, chew suggestions, teeth brushing, and dental cleaning. We are happy to demonstrate how to brush your pet’s teeth.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?

It is recommended to brush your dog’s teeth daily. If this is not possible, you should aim to brush their teeth four times per week at a minimum, to make a difference.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Oral health is important to maintain overall health in your pet. Periodontal disease can be painful and risk infection from spreading throughout the body. It is important to maintain good oral health to prevent your dog from unnecessary suffering and to enable your dog to live a long and happy life!
