Is stinky breath causing a rift between you and your pet?
Contrary to popular belief, bad breath isn’t something pet parents must simply learn to live with. In fact, it’s likely a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist.
Without proper care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can permeate the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your pet’s life.
Thankfully, with the right support, this can all be prevented.
The professional dentistry services at Hoschton Animal Hospital include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions.
Some of the signs of dental disease in dogs and cats include, but are not limited to:

- Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
