Imagine never brushing your teeth. How would your teeth look? How would your mouth feel? Studies show that 50% of all dogs and cats have some form of periodontal disease. That number jumps to 75% when you look at pets over age three. Left untreated, periodontal disease can cause infection, pain and tooth loss over time. It can also lead to damage to the heart, liver and kidneys, causing serious health problems for your pet.
At Mundelein Animal Hospital, we are committed to our patients' dental health and implement the highest quality dental care. We take a comprehensive approach to dental care including a dental health assessment at every appointment, treatment of dental problems, and prevention of dental disease.
We have state of the art dental equipment including digital x-rays to help diagnose disease that is below the gum tissue and therefore not always visible to the eye. We recommend an annual dental healthcare examination for all pets–make an appointment or call us to find out more!
