The staff offers high-quality dental care and specialized attention to cats and their owners. Dental disease can go beyond making eating and grooming difficult, and may negatively affect other areas of a cat’s health. Discounts on dental services such as dental exams, checkups, and cleanings make it more affordable for pet owners to address dental needs in a beloved pet. The veterinary team at All About Cats Veterinary Hospital are dedicated to supporting the needs of Las Vegas cats and their owners.

Periodontal disease is the most frequently seen dental issue veterinarians address in cats. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 7 in every 10 cats will have symptoms of periodontal disease by the age of three. Many pet owners think that bad kitty breath is normal. However, bad breath might be an early warning sign of dental disease. Other symptoms include red or swollen gums, pus surrounding the teeth, unusual pawing at the face, drooling, and yellow deposits on teeth.

Unaddressed plaque buildup may develop into tartar, becoming a breeding ground for bacteria and creating rough surfaces that invite additional bacteria growth and buildup. In response, the feline immune system may respond with gum inflammation and deeper pockets may develop that allow bacteria to get under the gums and loosen the gums’ hold on a pet’s teeth. Gingivitis can advance to periodontitis, resulting in potential gum infections and loose or decaying teeth.

A feline dental exam and cleaning involves the removal of plaque and tartar during anesthesia. This allows any developing pockets to lessen and perform their necessary functions, including being a barrier for bacteria and toxins from entering the bloodstream. X-rays also provide necessary information about the health of teeth.

“Pet owners need to be concerned about the cat’s dental health and understand how to prevent periodontal disease,” said Dr. Terri Koppe. “Pet owners can avoid symptoms of periodontal disease in kittens and cats with regular cleanings and exams. Our promotion provides additional incentive for pet owners to address any outstanding dental needs and maintain a cat’s good oral health.”
