Pet Dental in Council Bluffs: FAQ's

Your pet's oral health and hygiene can be an important key to making sure it lives a long and healthy life. At Animal Clinic of Council Bluffs, our veterinarians examine your pet's teeth and mouth during every pet wellness exam. Poor oral hygiene not only endangers your pet's teeth and gums, it can also lead to serious health problems throughout your pet's body. Our patient owners have many questions when bringing their pets to have their teeth examined.

How Often Should the Pet Dentist in Glenwood Clean My Pet's Teeth?

Our veterinarian will examine your pet's teeth every time you bring it into the office for a checkup, and she'll recommend a cleaning if she finds any abnormalities. As long as your pet's teeth remain in good health, our pet dentist should only need to give a cleaning yearly, beginning after its first birthday for cats and small dogs, or after the second for larger dogs.

Why Anesthetize my Pet During Cleaning?

To remove stress and pain during the cleaning process, our pet dentist will anesthetize your pet in a safe manner. Your pet will recover completely in under an hour without having to undergo the experience of teeth cleaning.

Why Does My Pet Have Bad Breath?

Most pets have breath that's slightly off, due to the nature of what they eat, but seriously bad breath can be a sign of a major dental problem. Rotting teeth, infected gums and bacterial growth all can cause bad odors in your pet's mouth. These infections can lead to serious health problems if not treated. Speak with one of our veterinarians if you notice your pet's breath smelling very bad.
