Pet Dental Care in Powell, OH

Dental care is a cornerstone of overall health for our beloved pets, yet it’s often overlooked.  Just like humans, pets can suffer from dental disease, which if left untreated can lead to serious health issues beyond just bad breath!  Poor dental care can affect your pet’s heart, liver, and kidneys.  Our team at Animal Hospital of Shawnee Hills is committed to not only treating dental disease, but also educating pet owners on the importance of preventive oral care. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are essential for maintaining your pet’s health and vitality, ensuring they lead a happy and pain-free life!

Recognizing when your pet needs a dental checkup is crucial. Symptoms of dental issues in pets include:    

  • Bad breath
  • Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
  • Drooling
  • Yellow or brown-ish teeth
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Changes in behavior, such as irritability or depression

If you notice any of these signs, it’s time to schedule a visit with us!  Early detection and treatment are key to preventing more serious health problems and ensuring your pet’s long-term well-being.

During every surgical dental cleaning at our hospital, we utilize the latest in dental care technology.  Our ultrasonic scaler and polisher allow for efficient and thorough cleaning, which reduces the amount of time your pet is under anesthesia.  For the safety and comfort of your pet, we administer general anesthesia for every dental cleaning, ensuring they remain stress-free and painless throughout the procedure, and allowing a thorough oral exam and dental x-rays.  In cases where tooth extractions or minor oral surgeries are necessary, our state-of-the-art digital x-ray equipment helps us make accurate diagnoses swiftly.  We also apply a dental sealant to help protect your pet’s teeth from future disease. After the procedure, our team will be happy to show you how to maintain your pet’s oral hygiene at home, providing demonstrations and advice on brushing techniques and dental health products.

We believe that a proactive approach to dental care is key to keeping your pet smiling brightly for years to come!
