Dog_w_toothbrush.jpgThe staff at Miracle Hills Animal Hospital knows how important dental care is to your pet's overall health. We want to help inform you on what dental disease can do to your pet and how you can prevent it.

Dental disease is a painful condition that affects nearly 80% of pets by the time they turn 3 years old. That's a significant number of pets that are in need of professional dental care! Here are a few signs that may help you determine if your pet should be seen by Dr. Schreiber:

Does your pet show any of these signs:

  • Bad breath
  • Discolored teeth or tartar covered teeth
  • Red, inflamed gums
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Drooling or dropping food
  • Loss of weight or appetite
If you answered yes to any of the above, your pet needs to have a free dental exam scheduled.

It's a known fact that untreated dental disease is the most common cause of health problems in pets. Dental disease affects more than just the mouth, it also affects the body's entire organ system including the heart, kidneys, and liver.

Miracle Hills Animal Hospital uses digital radiography, the most advanced below the gum x-raying techniques and diagnostics for your pet's teeth. Digital radiography eliminates lengthy film development time, allowing for quick dental film readings. This drastically reduces the anesthesia time for your pet! Animal teeth are often much smaller than human teeth and digital radiography allows visual enlargement of x-rays to a size that's needed for optimal reading and complete examination of even the tiniest pet teeth and gums!

Your pet will be in great hands during his/her periodontal cleaning. Dr. Schreiber is a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society and has over 60 hours of continuing education with his focus on dentistry. He has also had patients referred to him from other veterinarians for dental procedures. Dr. Schreiber understands the discomfort that dental issues can cause our pets therefore he administers nerve blocks to those patients who need more extensive work such as extractions to help minimize the pain. He also abides by the American Animal Hospital Association's (AAHA) guidelines for performing a periodontal cleaning.

Testimonials

The dental care process for my dog CoCo was AMAZING! This was the first oral check up for CoCo and the staff was to great about explaining everything to me. They kept me 'in the loop' on all they were doing and how CoCo was handling the process. They truly care about my dog and I couldn't be more appreciative.
