Village Veterinary Center

Pet Dentistry in Youngsville, LA

Contrary to common belief, bad breath is not something that all pet owners must simply accept. In fact, it’s most likely a sign that your pet is in need of dental treatment. Without proper care, your pet’s mouth can become a breeding ground for harmful bacteria. These germs can spread through the circulation over time, causing a variety of additional serious health issues. Dental illness, if left untreated, can cause your loved one’s life to be cut short. The good news is that you can avoid all of this with the appropriate help.

Village Veterinary Center’s expert dentistry treatments are designed to provide all of the care and attention required for a lifetime of healthy smiling. We provide both routine preventative care to keep plaque and tartar at bay and advanced treatment for existing oral diseases. We’ve got you covered whether you’re coming in for an annual dental exam and cleaning or if your pet needs a tooth pulled. To ensure patient safety, dental services include the use of safe, efficient anesthesia and regular monitoring.

Some of the signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose, or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen, or bleeding

If your pet is displaying any of these symptoms, it’s time to schedule an examination. We can figure out what the issue is and treat it quickly, improving your loved one’s prognosis.

We’ll work with you to keep your pet’s teeth healthy and clean all year long, in addition to providing professional dental care. It’s critical that you brush your companion’s teeth on a regular basis in between annual cleanings. This should be done at least three times a week, if not every day. Our knowledgeable staff will be pleased to demonstrate proper technique and provide recommendations for various oral health products.
