According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease.

In fact, most pet parents are not aware their pet is dealing with dental issues. Every examination includes an oral examination to assess the teeth and gums for dental disease. We are equipped to perform anesthetic dental cleanings, as well as, digital dental x-rays to assess for hidden tooth root disease.

Just as it’s important for you to see a dentist regularly, it’s important for dogs and cats as well. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. Signs of dental disease include bad breath, loose, broken or missing teeth, yellow or brown teeth, red, inflamed or bleeding gums, difficulty or pain when chewing, pawing at the mouth, and excessive drooling. If you notice any of these symptoms, please contact our team at either the Grantsburg Animal Hospital or Wild River Veterinary Clinic and we’ll be happy to help.

We are proud that we have the most up to date equipment to treat dental disease, including digital dental x-rays. This allows us to detect if there is any disease beneath the gum line that we would not be able to see otherwise. We are often able to see undetected abscesses, broken teeth, resorbed roots, retained roots, and more thanks to dental radiographs.
