Routine Pet Dental Care

Your pet is likely up to date with pet vaccinations. You also follow a strict diet regimen for your animal friend. Why do you do all this? The answer is to keep your furry friend's health in tip-top condition. But how well do you take care of your pet's dental health? Unfortunately, most pet owners do well in many areas but fail to manage their pet's dental health. Sea Paws Veterinary Services in Kemah, TX, gives you a few tips and tricks to ensure your pet's oral health remains in great shape.

Brushing Daily

Like humans, brushing your dog or cat is one of the most basic ways of taking care of their teeth and gums. Using special toothpaste and toothbrush, brush your pet's teeth at least twice a day. This routine eliminates harmful bacteria that invite gum disease to your pet's mouth.

Since most dogs don't like their muzzles touched, start by gently touching their gums and teeth. Next, introduce a toothbrush gradually, and finally, your dog will be receptive to routine cleaning of their teeth.

Dental Diet and Chews

Great nutrition helps in building strong teeth and gums. Our vet can recommend a diet that discourages the buildup of tartar and plaque. Talk to your veterinarian for ideas on chews and diets that improve your pet's dental health.

Schedule Regular Cleaning with a Veterinarian

Your at-home oral care for your pet is great, but unfortunately, the toothbrush can't reach all the crevices and spaces of your pet's mouth. For this reason, you need to schedule a visit with Dr. Cindy Marcum for periodic pet dental cleaning.

Schedule an annual visit with your vet to clean and examine your pet's dental health. We use special equipment and techniques to remove plaque and tartar on your pet's teeth and below the gum line.
