Q. Do you know what is the most commonly seen infection in dogs and cats?
A. Gum infection!
80% of pets 3 yrs. or older have periodontal disease (gum infection). Infection in the mouth is linked to many diseases in both Humans and Pets that shorten lifespan.
Our Brannon Crossing hospital is able to observe the condition of your pet's diseased or injured teeth by employing x-rays that target the inside of their mouth. Our hospital provides a variety of services that will assist in the correction and care of your pet's oral hygiene such as:
- The ability to perform root canals and apply crowns.
- Correcting misaligned teeth through orthodontics.
- Filling cavities.
However, if it is necessary, we can extract the tooth (Oral Surgery). This alternative would be better than the pain and complications brought by a periodontal disease.
