Humans are not the only ones who could use a little help keeping their mouth and teeth healthy. Animal dentistry can be just as important, and University Veterinary Hospital has the knowledge and equipment to supply it. Our veterinarian Dr. Jas Mattu offers regular dental checkups and cleanings for your pet, as well as advanced dentistry procedures when necessary. We can help keep your pets' teeth healthy with procedures at our office, and you can supplement their oral care with dental tips you can use at home.
Regularly brushing your pets' teeth can greatly enhance their oral health between cleanings from our veterinarian. You can use a piece of soft gauze or purchase a specific tooth brushing kit designed for pets. Baking soda and water can work as a paste, or you can also purchase a specific tooth paste made for pets. Small, gentle circles are typically an effective technique. Introducing your pets to the process before you begin can also help.
Two more ways to help keep dental issues at bay is with your pets' food and chew toys. Hard food helps eliminate plaque and bacteria buildup, and our veterinarian can recommend a diet that provides proper nutrients as it helps maintain good oral health. Chew toys can also assist with keeping your pets' teeth clean, especially those specifically designed to strengthen their teeth.
