As a pet parent, you may think that your dog or cat’s unpleasant breath is natural and something that you just need to get used to. It could, however, be a sign of serious trouble. While you probably shouldn’t expect your canine or feline companion to have minty-fresh breath, it shouldn’t smell so bad that you feel the need to turn away if they come in for a kiss!
In many cases, that dreaded doggy or kitty breath stems from a lack of proper dental care. Just like people, companion animals need dental services throughout their lives. Keep in mind, too, that unpleasant breath is just the tip of the iceberg. If you fail to keep up with your pet’s dental care, they could face discomfort, pain, or even premature death.
At West Lake Animal Hospital, we can help. We provide pet dentistry in Taylorsville and the surrounding areas and would be more than happy to have your pet as our newest patient.
