We’re sure you’ve heard it before…you need to get your pet’s teeth cleaned. Although that probably isn’t news to you, do you know the reason why? Keep reading to find out the answer, and learn more about the teeth brushing service we offer here at Pet Palace.
Whether you own a dog or a cat, there are a number of problems your pet could face if you don’t get its teeth cleaned regularly:
The American Animal Hospital Association recommends annual exams and dental cleanings for dogs and cats. These should begin at one year for cats and small breed dogs, and at two years of age for larger-breed dogs.
There are a few things you can do to protect your pet from developing gum disease:
During an appointment with a veterinarian dentist, your pet is anesthetized so the dentist can scale and scrape the teeth to remove plaque beneath the gum line. Although we don’t offer that service, we DO offer teeth brushing as an individually priced spa service. This is a great, affordable way to help keep your pet’s teeth clean and healthy in between visits to a professional veterinarian.
To book a teeth brushing appointment for your pet, contact your local Pet Palace by phone or request a grooming appointment online. We have two locations in the Indianapolis, Indiana region, and four throughout Ohio in Columbus, Hilliard, Delaware, and Cleveland.
