DENTISTRY

 Do kisses and close cuddles have you shying away from your animal friend due to bad breath?

Despite what you may have heard, stinky breath isn’t something that all pet owners simply must learn to live with. To the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your companion needs dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, these bacteria can spread throughout the bloodstream and result in a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your pet’s life. Thankfully, with the right support, you can prevent all of this.

The professional dentistry services at Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono are designed to provide 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 the advanced treatment of existing oral conditions. Whether you’re here for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered. All dental care 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, discolored, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding
  • Slowing down due to “old age”
  • Hiding, less active, or irritable

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

At Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono, we follow certain standards for providing proper and safe professional dental care for our patients. These include:

  • Completed pre-anesthetic testing which typically includes blood work, may vary with patient
  • Inhalation anesthesia
  • Anesthetic monitoring (pulse and respiratory rates, EKG, SPO2, blood pressure, ETCO2, core body temperature to name a few)
  • IV fluids delivered via constant rate infusion
  • Patient warming equipment
  • Patient padding
  • Intra-oral X-ray, which is very important
  • Proper training of veterinarian and staff to effectively manage a dental care patient

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

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your animal family member. The comprehensive dental services at Animal Hospital of Mt. Pocono can help get you there! Call or text us today at 570-839-8116 to schedule your appointment!
