Is stinky breath coming between you and your pet?
Despite what others may have told you, bad breath isn’t something that pet owners must simply learn to live with. To the contrary, it’s probably a sign that your pet could use a visit to the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can attract bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and lead to several other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life.
Fortunately, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Montecito Animal Clinic include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
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

We’ll also show you how you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free at home, in between professional cleanings.
You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Montecito Animal Clinic can help get you there!
