Dentistry

 

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your furry friend due to bad breath?

Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that all pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your companion is in need of dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, these bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten an animal’s life. The good news is, with the right support, you can prevent all of this.

Our professional dentistry services are designed to provide all 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 advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. Whether you’re stopping in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered. Dental 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, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

 

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

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

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your four-legged friend once again. The comprehensive dental services at Willow Bend Animal Clinic can help get you there!

      Took my two puppies for an emergency walk in appointment, and could not have been happier. Dr. Hunt was thorough and great with my dogs. I appreciated the speed of appointment, care of all the staff and how friendly everyone was. What a great first experience with this practice.

      Shout out to Willow Bend Animal Clinic for taking such good care of our puppy Bear. This was the second time they have pulled him through. First with parvovirus and now mushroom poisoning. We are very fortunate to have such skilled and compassionate veterinarians and staff in our area.

      We have never been a client, but found ourselves in an emergency last night and in an area with no large animal coverage. Dr. Hunt came quickly and took care of my daughters horse. He was very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable and took care of the situation. He had one of the best “bedside” manners of any large vet I have ever met. We may have never been a client before but we definitely will be now.

      My 2 big babies were neutered last week and Willow Bend did a phenomenal job! They recovered so nicely and quickly. While they were there, the vet noticed they had an ear infection and treated it right there on the spot. I appreciate the professionalism and love they put into their job. We will be back for all of our future needs! ❤️ 🐾
