Visit Us For Pet Dental Services

Often one of the most overlooked aspects of pet health, dental care is very important for an animal. If you ignore providing dental care for your pet, problems can occur in his teeth, gums, and organs. For residents in Walker Valley, Pinebush, Ellenville, and the surrounding areas, we at Walker Valley Veterinary Hospital are here to help you understand the dental issues we can treat. 


Common Pet's Dental Issues We Treat

Neglecting your pet's dental health can be detrimental to your pet’s overall health. In addition to cleanings and other minor treatments, there are various other reasons your animal may need dental care. If your cat or dog is suffering from any of the below issues, our qualified veterinarians can help:

  • Bad breath
  • Extra teeth
  • Discolored teeth
  • Retained baby teeth
  • Drooling or abnormal chewing habits
  • Loose or broken teeth
  • Bleeding of gums or other areas of the mouth
  • Loss of appetite
  • Refusal of food or treats
  • Swelling in the mouth

The above issues are often caused by the following issues, diseases, or disorders:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Broken roots or teeth
  • Infected teeth or abscessed teeth
  • Tumors or cysts in the mouth area 
  • Fractured or broken jaw
  • Cleft palate or other palate defects
  • Malocclusion

Things to Know Before Your Pet’s Teeth Cleaning Appointment

Similar to when humans visit a dentist, some measures must be taken to make sure your pet is comfortable and to ensure the dental cleaning runs more smoothly. For example, your animal will be required to receive anesthesia. Not only can it protect your pet and our veterinarians, but it can make it less painful and scary for your animal. Therefore, anesthesia is necessary for every dental cleaning.
