It’s one of the most profound things you can do for your pet,
(PRWEB) October 21, 2014
Veterinarian and pet dental specialist Dr. Jodi Reed today announced that pet owners in Apex NC could significantly reduce the cost of maintaining their pets’ oral health by scheduling regular professional dental cleanings and exams.
“It’s one of the most profound things you can do for your pet,” says Dr. Reed. “Between 85% and 90% of all pets need dental care by the age of 2 or 3 years, but it’s possible to reduce the incidence and costs of dental problems by being proactive.”
Being proactive includes learning how to brush your pets’ teeth daily using the correct methods, tools and products, and having regular dental examinations by a professional veterinary specialist. Dr. Reed says it’s not just about keeping the costs down, either. “With regular dental care, you can make sure your pet stays free from pain and discomfort,” she says, “and you’ll also see fewer oral infections and a longer, better quality of life.”
But what about the risks of anesthesia to pets, especially elderly ones? Dr. Reed doesn’t discount that, but says the methods used and technology available these days substantially minimizes the risks. “And besides,” she says, “the alternative is to promote a range of problems, all of which carry their own individual health risks and can also lead to the need to for surgery—and therefore a requirement for anesthesia.”
For pet owners who are struggling to justify the cost of having their pet’s teeth cleaned professionally, Dr. Reed warns that failing to do so can result in much higher costs in the long term. “The longer you wait, the more it’s going to cost you in money, and your pet in wellbeing,” she says.
