Cat Dental Disease

Cat Dental Services

Diseases of the teeth and gums are, unfortunately, common in cats. Studies show that up to 90% of cats four years of age and over suffer from dental disease. The top three dental diseases in cats include gingivitis, periodontitis, and tooth resorption. All can cause discomfort and pain for our feline friends. Cats typically learn to live with this pain, thus typically do not stop eating, making it difficult for owners to be alerted of a concern.

Cat Senior Care

Senior Cat Care

One focus during your senior cat check-up will be to question you on any changes you’ve noticed with your pet, whether they seem significant to you or not. Our goal is to catch signs of illness at an early stage, so that more options exist for us to better manage what’s going on with your pet. Often, a simple diet change is a major part of the treatment plan, for example. Some common concerns we see with aging cats may include an overactive thyroid (hyperthroidism), decreased kidney function, vision problems, or pain and mobility issues.

Dog Allergies

Itchy dogs are one of the most common reasons pet owners visit their veterinarian, especially in the Austin area! Dogs are often in a lot of discomfort from being itchy during an allergy flare-up, and some dogs will have chronic respiratory issues as well. If you notice excessive licking (especially of the paws), scratching, chewing of body parts, rubbing the body on the ground or furniture, notice hair loss, or frequent sneezing, your dog could be suffering from allergies.

Dog Dental Disease

Dog Dental Services

Diseases of the teeth and gums are not uncommon in dogs. The top dental concerns in dogs include gingivitis, periodontitis, abscessed teeth fractured or broken teeth, and discolored teeth. All can be a source of discomfort, pain, and infection for our canine friends. Dogs typically learn to live with this pain, thus typically do not stop eating, making it difficult for owners to be alerted of a concern. This is why it’s so important for you veterinarian to check your dog’s mouth for signs of disease at least annually, and sooner should an owner notice changes such as bad breath.
