North Hollywood Vet Keeps Bad Breath at Bay

couch_puppy_med.jpgAt Blue Cross Pet Hospital, we want pet owners to know that maintaining healthy teeth and gums in your pet is important both to his or her oral hygiene and overall well-being. Tartar build-up or gum disease could lead to infections and further affect different parts of your pet's body. Our North Hollywood pet hospital is here to help with all of your pet dental care needs, providing care for pets in the Sherman Oaks and Studio City communities as well. 
We encourage pet owners to be proactive in caring for their pets' teeth. Bad breath in your pet can often be a symptom of poor oral health or other health issue. By scheduling a visit with the vet, a minor problem can be fixed before it turns into a major one.  At the appointment, our veterinarian can also demonstrate brushing methods so that you will be able to maintain proper dental treatment for your pet at home between visits. 
Our animal hospital has been in practice since 1949, and we are adamant about educating pet owners about the preventative measures they should take to make sure pets are at their healthiest. Dental examinations are a necessary part of a pet's health routine and should be included when scheduling regular check-ups with our veterinarian

Animal Hospital Dental Services Give Pet Owners Reasons to Smile

For our North Hollywood pet owners as well as those in Sherman Oaks, Studio City and the surrounding neighborhoods, we understand that a healthy pet is a happy pet. The services we provide are to make your pet feel their most comfortable while undergoing care at our hospital.
Our professional teeth cleanings keep pet teeth healthy and polished. We can also inspect for any broken teeth or teeth that have become loose from chomping on chew toys, teeth erosion or other factors that may indicate decay and disease. In the case where surgery may be required, we provide anesthesia that is safe and animal-friendly to ensure a smooth procedure.

The goal of each dental visit is to make sure that your pet's health is at its best. Need at-home tips for dental care for your pet? Ask away!
