At-Home Dog and Cat Teeth Cleaning Education from Coal Mine Animal Hospital

We believe that at-home dog and cat teeth cleaning is nearly as important as professional dental care. 85% of dogs and cats have periodontal disease by 3 years of age, and oral disease is the most frequently diagnosed infectious disease in pets. That’s why we provide at-home dental care education to all of our clients. We make home dental care a very important focus of our pet-owner education, because we know that an improvement on oral health has a direct effect on the improvement of physical health. We recommend a number of products for at-home dental care, some of which we provide right in our office! If you need instruction about home dental care techniques or have questions about dental care recommendations, we recommend schedule a tutorial appointment with us.

Potential Signs of Periodontal Disease

If your pet has one or more of these symptoms, he or she may have periodontal disease.

  • Bad breath
  • Red, swollen, or bleeding gums
  • Brown or yellow discoloration or crusts of tartar on teeth
  • Decreased appetite or difficulty chewing
  • Drooling
  • Loose or missing teeth
  • Reluctance to groom
  • Pain when the mouth or gums are touched (You may not notice this until periodontal disease is very advanced- dogs and cats are great at hiding discomfort and pain)
