You take good care of your four-legged companion.
But it’s easy to forget to take care of your cat’s teeth.
You take good care of your four-legged companion. But it’s easy to forget to take care of your cat’s teeth.
The team at Just Cats Hospital understands how difficult caring for your favorite feline’s teeth can be, and we’re here to help!
Cats can be burdened by dental diseases and problems just as easily as we are. Regular dental check-ups at Just Cats Hospital, combined with good dental hygiene at home, can increase your cat’s health, vitality, and well-being while helping ensure he or she leads the best life possible.
If left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your cat’s overall health before symptoms are noticeable. For those reasons, our veterinary team strongly considers dental care an important piece of your cat’s preventive health care program.
Dental appointment includes
- Oral examinations under anesthesia
- Diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease
- Full mouth digital X-rays
- Scaling of teeth and below the gumline
- Tooth extractions (when needed)
Should we find any issue—such as evidence of gum or tooth erosion, gingivitis, “cat cavities,”or fractured teeth—we will discuss this with you and offer treatment options for your cat. We are experienced dental practitioners and can offer a number of dental procedures and oral surgeries.
Signs of Feline Dental Problems
- Bad breath—one of the first signs of dental disease
- A yellowish-brown crust of plaque on the teeth near the gum line
- Red and swollen gums
- Pain or bleeding when your cat eats or when the mouth or gums are touched
- Decreased appetite or difficulty eating
- Loose or missing teeth
