Dental Wellness at our Fernandina Beach Animal Hospital
Whenever your pet is in need of dental care, our expert veterinarian at Amelia Pointe Animal Hospital & Daycare in Fernandina Beach provides both a dental exam and teeth cleaning. We understand how years of poor nutrition or the aging process takes a toll on your pet's dental health. From the care we offer to the healthy result, your pet will be a step ahead in their oral wellness.
What We Offer
Our animal hospital generously cares for each client and their pet with an extensive array of services. Pet dental care is something we don't take lightly. Oftentimes, there's an underlying cause or symptom that's creating the oral health problem, and we aim to remedy the situation with a thorough exam.
Pet dental care is part of an overall wellness plan for your animal. Our staff and veterinarian provide thorough teeth cleaning with minimal invasiveness and maximal compassion. Your pet might experience a level of anxiety that goes along with animal hospital visits, yet our dedicated team brushes your pet's teeth with a soft brush and a natural-type toothpaste. We want to ensure that if they get fidgety or want to swallow the contents, using the best and foremost ingredients in toothpaste is our ultimate concern.
If your pet needs any teeth removed due to severe decay or compromised eating, we give proper attention to what teeth are causing pain for discomfort and subsequent measures taken to extract the tooth. If mild sedation is needed, our caring veterinary team provides calming tactics to keep your pet safe and secure during extraction.
Some pets experience bad breath, and this can be of greater significance if left untreated. Oftentimes, a persistent foul odor coming from the inside of your pet's mouth can denote a serious illness. Through a dental exam and medical health history of your animal, we are able to detect why their breath is oft-putting and how we can remedy the situation.
The Key to Oral Health is Maintenance
Pets need as much dental care attention as their human counterparts. After consuming days and weeks of food, it's not only healthy to regularly brush their teeth but to perform deep cleaning at least once per month. Maintenance is vital to their dental success.
There are specific raw foods they can eat during the interim of our deep cleaning and your regular tooth brushing. Carrots, apples, cheese, broccoli stalks are ideal teeth cleansers for a dog's mouth, as long as you don't go overboard. Small bites work best and only offer these raw foods as a treat.
