At Animal Medical Center of Appleton, we know your pet is more than just a friend; he or she is a member of the family. You buy the best food, spoil him or her with treats and fill your home with toys for him or her to play with. Taking great care of your cat, dog, rabbit, bird or rodent never feels like work, especially when you leave the tough stuff to the professionals. Pet dental care in Appleton typically requires a vet to keep a lookout for issues you and your pet may not notice. Dental care may include teeth cleaning, examination and diagnostics if there are concerns. Potential animal dental issues include:

  • Worn teeth
  • Jaw injury
  • Fractured teeth
  • Plaque
  • Abscesses
  • Gingivitis
  • Incorrect bite

Common Dental Issues

Pet dental care begins at home with a dental exam and cleaning performed by you. This is important so you can keep an eye out for symptoms that could mean trouble for your animal. You don’t have to be a veterinary dentist to practice great oral hygiene for your pet. Brushing your pet’s teeth is an important part of this process, but so is keeping an eye out for common symptoms that can mean something is wrong. These include:
