Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your furry friend due to bad breath?

Contrary to popular belief, foul breath isn’t something that all pet owners simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s probably a sign that your animal companion is in need of dental care. Without adequate attention, your pet’s mouth can become a haven for dangerous bacteria. Over time, these bacteria can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other serious health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten your loved one’s life. The good news is, with the right support, you can prevent all of this.

The professional dentistry services at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon are designed to provide all the care and attention needed for a lifetime of healthy smiles. We offer both routine, preventative care to keep plaque and tartar at bay, as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. Whether you’re stopping in for an annual dental exam and cleaning, or your pet needs a tooth extracted, we’ve got you covered. Dental services include the use of safe, effective anesthetic and constant monitoring to ensure patient safety.

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

If your pet is exhibiting any of these things, it’s time to schedule an exam. We can determine what the problem is and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your animal friend.

In addition to our professional dental care, we’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your pet’s teeth stay healthy and clean year-round. In between annual cleanings, it’s important that you’re brushing your companion’s teeth regularly. We recommend doing this at least three times a week, if not daily. Our experienced staff would be happy to offer demonstrations of the proper technique and give advice on various dental health products you can try.

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles with your four-legged friend once again. The professional pet dentistry services at Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon can help get you there!

      Went to the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for the first time today for my dog's check up and for a few shots. Somewhat new to the area and couldn't be happier with the service and care they gave from the second I walked through the door to the second I walked out the door. Everyone in the office was extremely friendly and made a point to say hi to my dog and to ask me how our visit was going. Dr. Gass was excellent, very friendly and took time to explain to me the shots my dog would be getting since they were not typical ones we had the last place we lived. First visit but 100% recommend.

      We have been clients of the Animal Hospital of Ashwaubenon for the past 15 years. Our cat, Squeak, has had a prolonged illness for the past 1 1/2 years. We said goodbye to her last week. We want to acknowledge the excellent care we have received from everyone at the clinic. Dr. Gass and his staff have been courteous, helpful and very caring and have gone far out of the way to accommodate our needs. John and Marilyn thank you!

      We have always had excellent care, got in for appointments when needed and very accommodating around my work schedule. I have gotten test results back quickly and appreciate getting the results via phone calls from Dr. Gass.
