Dental care is important to your pet’s overall health. Just like people, animals can develop various oral health complications, including cavities, gum disease and infections. The bacteria in the mouth can sometimes even travel to other areas of the body when it gets in the bloodstream, causing significant health problems. Prevention is key to keeping your pet as healthy as it can be, so don’t hesitate to reach out to our veterinary dentist. Byron Center pet owners can depend on our experienced team at Blue Lake Animal Hospital when they need exemplary dental care.
There are many responsibilities associated with being a pet owner. You’re in charge of giving your pet food, water and a safe place to sleep. Beyond those basic needs involves taking your pet to a veterinarian. Dental checkups are a huge part of keeping your furry friend healthy. Gingivitis, plaque buildup and other oral health issues can lead to various health problems down the line, so preventing these from occurring is the best option. A full dental exam can find issues that you are unaware of. Our veterinarians will look for the signs of developing infections and tooth decay, which can be adequately prevented.

From the moment you walk into our office, we want you to feel at home. You’ll be proud to leave your pet in the hands of our trustworthy veterinarians.
Over our years of operation, we’ve observed several common dental health issues in the pets we care for. After all, pets are susceptible to a number of dental problems, especially if their teeth are not properly taken care of. An estimated 80% of cats and dogs have some levels of inflammation in their teeth, gums and nearby bones, so it’s unfortunately common for a pet to develop such complications. Many pets will experience the following issues in their lifetime:
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to prevent these issues before they ever happen. It’s recommended that you brush your pet’s teeth several times a week with a soft brush. There are specially made products designed for animals. Healthy dental habits will help to ensure your pet stays healthy and doesn’t face severe oral health problems throughout its lifetime. Our veterinarians can provide the guidance you need to care for your pet’s teeth at home, as well as tips to make the process easier.
