Where Your Pet Comes First

Professional Pet Dental Services in Toronto

Dental hygiene is one of the most overlooked issues when it comes to pets. It is as important in dogs and cats as it is in humans. Most pet owners don’t even notice any oral discomfort that their pet might be experiencing, which leads to further complications. You might think that your pet is happy and lives a life unbothered by dental concerns, but that is far from reality.

The reason for this goes back to the pet’s ancestry; in the wild, showing pain would make an animal susceptible to attacks. Therefore they try to hide any discomfort. But according to vets, 85 percent of canines over age 4 suffer from some form of gum disease.

Kato Animal Hospital offers the realiable pet dental services in Toronto. The highest percentage of complaints we get about one’s pet’s oral hygiene is bad breath. Although it may seem harmless, more often than not, it is typically one of the symptoms of a severe dental disease known as Periodontal disease.

Periodontal disease can lead to loss of teeth and other severe effects like widespread organ damage. Another dental disease that your pet may be suffering from is Gingivitis. Continuous neglect of oral hygiene can lead to the formation of tartar underneath your pet’s gums that makes the gums red & inflamed and eventually results in Gingivitis.

Your pet may be living a very uncomfortable life, and you might not even know it. Here at Kato Animal Hospital in Toronto, we have all the tools in our arsenal to diagnose and treat your pet’s dental problems that may be as simple as a plaque buildup to as severe as Periodontal disease.

Subgingival Hand-Scaling

This method allows us to remove the subgingival calculus from the tooths’ surface. It is a very meticulous process that eliminates as much debris and inflamed tissue as possible to prevent diseases like Periodontal or Gingivitis.

Tooth Extractions and Re-alignment

Sometimes, your pet may be suffering from Malocclusion, which is a misalignment of the lower and upper jaw. While this may be normal for some breeds, your pet may have difficulty chewing in other extreme cases.

Our professionals can diagnose and evaluate these problems with precision and help your pet by re-aligning, capping, or extracting their teeth if needed. If you feel like your pet is having any difficulty while eating, get in touch with us today for a dental diagnosis of your pet in Toronto.

Factors Associated with Pet Dental Disease

Paying close attention to the factors contributing to dental issues can help you maintain your pet's oral health. These factors include:

  • Diet: Some foods increase the occurrence of dental problems in pets. When you visit our animal hospital in Toronto, we can help you identify these food items.
  • Age: While dental problems can occur in younger pets, they're more common in senior animals. Looking out for the early signs of dental troubles in your older pet can help you take preventative action.
  • Breed: Some breeds, such as smaller dogs or Persian cats, are more likely to have crowded teeth, making cleaning hard. This particular factor can contribute to your pet having poor oral health.

When you visit us for pet dental services in Toronto, we will carefully inspect the factors causing and worsening your pet's dental issues.

 

The Importance of Pet Dental Services

Some reasons to pay attention to your pet's dental health are:

  • Tooth loss: Ignoring signs of infection and decay can cause your pet's tooth to fall out, severely impacting chewing and digestion.
  • Oral pain: While your pet might not be able to express it in words, some oral problems can cause immense pain to them.
  • Organ damage: If left unchecked, pet’s plaque bacteria can damage their organs, spreading via their bloodstream and causing further health issues.

Pet Dental Services | FAQ

Having access to information allows you to make informed decisions about your pet's dental health. The following are some commonly asked questions about pet dental services:

 

How Common Are Pet Dental Problems?

Many people are not aware that a large number of dogs and cats suffer from dental diseases. This lack of information causes failure to treat easily avoidable dental problems. As a result, many pets eventually suffer from liver, kidney, digestive and other issues.

 

Are My Pet's Dental Problems the Same as Mine?

No, they're not. While humans tend to suffer from dental decay and cavities, cats and dogs do not. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of pet dental health problems.

 

Why Does My Pet Require Professional Dental Cleaning?

While home care and dental cleaning are essential, we will clean your pet's teeth in a way that you can't. We deep clean your pet's teeth to remove bacteria, tartar and other particles to prevent diseases. Moreover, we can identify early signs of diseases and nip them in the bud. 

 

How Often Should I Bring My Pet in for a Teeth Cleaning?

This depends on your pet's dental health. Many factors can affect the frequency of dental visits, such as:

  • Whether your pet suffers from any diseases
  • Type of homecare
  • Diet
  • Age
  • Breed
  • And more

The frequency of visits can vary from once a month to a year. To get a better idea, please speak with our team.

 

How Much Will My Pet’s Dental Services Cost?

There is no set standard on the cost of pet dental care. The price eventually depends on factors such as:

  • The nature of the issue
  • The type of procedure required
  • Your pet's age
  • Your pet's overall dental health
  • Your pet's requirements
