Periodontal Disease & Your Pet

Periodontal disease is considered the most common disease effecting cats and dogs. It is an infection of the tissues that hold the teeth in place. In the early stages of the disease, symptoms can be mild, but , as the disease advances, pain and permanent damage can occur to the teeth and jawbone.

The symptoms of periodontal disease include:

  • Bad breath
  • Blood in the saliva or water dish
  • Difficulty eating
  • Excessive drooling
  • Loose teeth

If your pet is experiencing one or more of the above symptoms, give us a call at (503) 285-2337. We’ll perform an oral exam to check to see if your pet is suffering from periodontal disease. Your Portland veterinarian will help you get your pet back on the right track to good oral health.

It’s important to understand how periodontal disease starts so you can have a better idea of how to help them avoid the disease entirely. Periodontal disease is caused by a buildup of plaque on the teeth. Plaque is a bacterial film that hardens on the surface of the teeth when it dies, creating more surface area for more plaque to accumulate. You can deter buildup with regular brushing, or by giving your pet certain treats or toys to chew on. However, without proactive measures, the buildup of plaque can move below the gumline, where it can cause infection. At this point, only a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia can properly remove the plaque from your pet’s teeth.

Dental Cleanings at Lombard Animal Hospital

If your pet needs a dental cleaning to get rid of their plaque buildup, the Portland veterinary team at Lombard Animal Hospital is ready to help! As an AAHA accredited animal hospital, our surgical suite is equipped with the latest monitoring equipment to keep an eye on your pet while they’re under anesthesia. We use tools similar to those used by human dentists to scale and polish your pet’s teeth and then apply an anti-plaque treatment to protect them from future buildup.

Keep your pet smiling with dental care at Lombard Animal Hospital! Call (503) 285-2337 or contact us online to schedule your next appointment with our Portland veterinarians.
