Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pets’ health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at El Abrigado Animal Clinic, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
Besides a variety of health benefits that help your pet live a longer, happier life, there are also behavioral benefits to spaying and neutering your pets. It also helps decrease the number of homeless pets and strays that get euthanized every year.

However, many ticks carry terrible diseases such as Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, and more. Some dogs are allergic to tick bites, which causes a serious problem.
Fortunately for us, we offer prevention (or preventative choices) for fleas and ticks. Ask one of our veterinarians today about flea and tick prevention to keep your pet happy and healthy.
At El Abrigado Animal Clinic, we emphasize the importance of preventing parasites. Through preventative measures, you can successfully protect your pet. Pets that are not protected often develop parasites, leading to serious problems for them and their owners.
