What’s that awful smell coming from your pet? It could be his or her breath! One of the most commonly overlooked areas of pet health is oral and dental care. Periodontal disease can affect more than the mouth. As the disease progresses, it can also cause damage to the heart, kidneys and liver.
During an office examination at Marcello Veterinary Hospital, your veterinarian will give your pet a dental health evaluation to determine whether your pet needs a professional cleaning. General anesthesia is required for your cat or dog to receive the most complete and thorough cleaning possible. At Marcello Veterinary Hospital we know this is a concern for pet owners and we are committed to the safety and well-being of your four-legged family member. All vital signs are monitored closely and appropriate pain medication is given to keep them comfortable.
In addition to regular cleanings, we also recommend brushing your pet’s teeth at home. Just ask one of Marcello Veterinary Hospital’s team members for a lesson.
