Your pet’s oral health is one of the most important parts of his or her overall health, yet, it is often overlooked. At Westmonte Animal Clinic, it is the goal of our veterinarian to help pet parent’s stop this health decline before it starts! Waiting until you smell bad breath from your pet may mean this process has already started. At each Preventive Care Exam, our veterinarian will look into your pet’s mouth and assess your pet’s overall dental health.
Your pet’s bad breath may be a warning sign of serious health problems. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of periodontal (gum) disease by age 3. Periodontal disease is one of the most common conditions seen in pets today. If your dog or cat has bad breath, get your pet’s oral health checked. Call us (407) 862-6892
