Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your furry friend due to bad breath?

Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that all pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your animal companion is in need of dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, these bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your pet’s life. The good news is, with the right support, you can prevent all of this.

The professional dentistry services at Brentwood Animal Hospital are designed to provide all the care and attention needed for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We offer both routine, preventative care to keep plaque and tartar at bay, as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. Whether you’re stopping in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered. Dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic and constant monitoring to ensure patient safety.

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your pet is exhibiting any of these things, it’s time to schedule an exam. We can determine what the problem is and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one.

In addition to our professional dental care, we’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your pet’s teeth stay healthy and clean year-round. In between annual cleanings, it’s important that you’re brushing your companion’s teeth regularly. We recommend doing this at least three times a week, if not daily. Our experienced staff would be happy to offer demonstrations of the proper technique and give advice on various dental health products you can try.

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your four-legged family member once again. The comprehensive dental services at Brentwood Animal Hospital can help get you there!

      My pet was suffering from severe vomitting. After spending the day under the care of BAH my pet had a speedy recovery. I am very pleased the care my pet was given. I will go again in future with no hesitation.

      I take care of a cat in my backyard, and she had 3 babies and I bought them here to get checked out and any shots needed. The staff was very nice, the Doctor I think his name was Dr. Manzoor was very polite and answered all of my questions. The prices were reasonable being as though I had three little ones. I am going back for the second round of shots and will highly recommend this Vet to anyone. Thanks again to the staff at Brentwood you rock!
