How to keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy-Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo 

Dental (periodontal) disease is one of the most common chronic health conditions seen in pets.  This condition involves far more than dirty teeth and “doggy breath.” It is a serious condition which can have serious consequences for our animal companions.

Dental and periodontal disease begin early in a pet’s life, with most dogs and cats showing signs of tartar and gum inflammation as early as two or three years old.  Early signs of disease can include yellow buildup on teeth (tartar), bad breath, and red, swollen gums.  Even mild signs of disease warrant intervention as they are the beginning stages of a progressive disease that can ultimately have serious consequences.

Dental disease is progressive, starting with the early signs mention above.  Over time, it can result in tooth pain, tooth root abscesses, tooth loss, gum disease, jaw bone loss, and even kidney, liver, or heart damage.  These changes can be the source of chronic pain for our petsFor these reasons, good oral health has been shown to contribute to longer, happier, healthier lives for both pets and people.

Comprehensive veterinary dental cleanings are a core component of your pet’s wellness.   A proper veterinary dental cleaning includes: hand and ultrasonic scaling both above and below the gumline, probing of sub-gingival pockets (which can be sites of infection), a comprehensive oral examination, thorough enamel polishing, and fluoride treatment.  Additionally, full-mouth radiographs (X-rays) are essential for proper veterinary dental care.  This allows the veterinary team to look for disease below the gumline which can include tooth-root abscesses, tooth root resorption, and bone loss.

Because a proper dental cleaning involves radiographs, full oral examination, and probing beneath the gumline, safe general anesthesia is essential for the procedure.  While “anesthesia free” dentals may seem like an enticing alternative, they are both more stressful for the pet and they do not allow for comprehensive care and assessment of oral tissues.  Pre-anesthetic bloodwork, IV fluids, and comprehensive vital sign monitoring help keep anesthesia safe so that dental care can be performed on your pet safely and stress free.

Dental disease is most easily treated in the early stages of the condition when it can often be resolved by a routine comprehensive veterinary dental cleaning.  Pets with more severe dental disease may require extractions or other interventions.  

Once your pet’s teeth have been addressed through veterinary dentistry, a comprehensive home care program can begin.  The gold standard of home care is daily brushing.  While this is most easily taught to young puppies and kittens, even adult pets can learn to accept this procedure if you start slowly and train them using positive techniques.  For pets who don’t allow toothbrushing, there are other options such as dental health diets, dental health chews, toys that promote oral hygiene, and water and food additives.  It should be noted that not all pet oral health products are created equal.  Products approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC) have been rigorously tested and proven to promote oral health.  Finally, products that are very hard and/or are difficult to bend or break easily (such as antlers, bones, and synthetic bones) should be avoided as they can actually break teeth or chip tooth enamel.

February is National Dental Health Month.  This is a great time to start thinking about your pet’s oral health!  Addressing your pet’s dental health starts with a comprehensive veterinary examination.  As part of this exam, your veterinarian will check your pet’s teeth and gums. They will be able to give you a professional assessment of your pet’s oral health and give you recommendations for steps to be taken for your pet’s oral (and general) health.

If you would like to schedule an appointment, please contact our hospital at (760) 736-3636 and set up an appointment with one of our experienced veterinarians.

Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo is kicking off our new Wellness Diagnostic Packages

Give your pet the gift of great health this holiday season!  Advanced Veterinary Care of San Elijo is kicking off our new Wellness Diagnostic Packages with our Healthy for the Holidays Promotion!  For a limited time, we are offering comprehensive wellness packages* at up to 40% off our previous pricing of services purchased a la carte’!

Pet Preventative and Wellness care is the key to helping our animal companions live longer, healthier & happier lives.  This type of care encompasses healthy diet and exercise, preventative medical treatments such as vaccines, flea, and heartworm preventions, as well as wellness examinations and labwork.  While many owners understand the need for a healthy lifestyle and preventative vaccinations, they are often not familiar with the idea of and need for veterinary wellness screening.

Wellness care means care provided to your pet when they are not sick in hopes of keeping your pet healthier and happier longer.  It includes annual examinations, wellness blood tests, fecal screens, and even X-rays and ultrasounds. These exams and diagnostics help our doctors confirm that your pet is indeed healthy while establishing “baseline”/normal labwork values which can be tracked over the years.

Perhaps one of the most important functions of wellness diagnostics is the early detection of illness and disease.  Subtle changes in labwork can signal to a veterinarian that something may be wrong with a pet who otherwise appears healthy.  Just as it is with people, early detection is key to delaying progression of disease, or even providing a cure for many conditions.

Now is a perfect time for pet owners to take this important step toward ensuring their pet’s long-term health.  Through December 31, 2022 we are offering comprehensive wellness packages tailored to your pet’s needs based on their species and stage of life.  These discounted packages include a complete veterinary physical exam as well as comprehensive labwork and other diagnostics to help make sure that your pet’s bodily systems are healthy and there are no indications of early disease or illness.  

Our Healthy for the Holidays Wellness Packages for 2022:
