HOW CAN TOOTHACHE AND DENTAL DISEASE BE PREVENTED?
When it comes to your pet’s dental health, prevention is paramount!
You can do your part at home by providing food and toys that help clean your companion’s teeth. Or even better—brush their teeth with dental products designed specifically for cats and dogs.
Ask your Globalvet clinic veterinary team for advice. They can show you how to brush your pet’s teeth and what products work best. And visit our nutrition store to see the different products we carry.
AT THE VET
Despite your best efforts, your pet will need to see the veterinarian at some point for a dental problem. Many treatments, like complete scaling and X-rays for prevention and monitoring, simply can’t be done at home. But don’t worry—our veterinarians are on your side. Part of their job is to detect dental problems early on to prevent further complications.
The vet will examine your pet’s mouth, looking for early warning signs of the most common dental health issues. They may also recommend further tests, like a dental X-ray, and a course of treatment based on what they find during the exam, your pet’s age and breed, and what kind of dental care you’re already providing at home.
