Quality Pet Dentistry Services in Murfreesboro, Tennessee


The Importance of Animal Oral Care

Animals use their mouths for more than just eating; they use them to play and experience the world around them. When their oral health is compromised, they may experience pain and become irritable. As such, good dental care is an important factor in the happiness of your pet. Give your furry friend the best chance at happiness and health by scheduling a dental checkup with Stones River Veterinary Hospital.

Our Pet Dentistry Services

Pet dentistry has become a very important component of good veterinary care. It is in the best interests of your dog or cat to bring them in at least once a year for a dental exam to check for early signs of problems and keep their mouths healthy. Our gentle veterinarians will perform a meticulous checkup and teeth cleaning on your pet and any additional adjustments, X-rays, extractions or repairs they may need.
When an animal's oral maintenance is neglected, they run a higher risk of periodontal disease and other conditions that cause oral lesions. These sores provide easy access for bacteria and other toxins which are then absorbed into the bloodstream and affect other areas of the body. To prevent this problem, come to our trained and certified veterinarians for comprehensive dental services.

When to Bring Your Pet In

In addition to annual checkups, you should bring your animal in to see us if you notice any of the following problems:
  • Bad breath
  • Broken teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Retained baby teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Discoloration on the teeth
  • Bleeding or swelling of the mouth
  • Abnormal chewing
  • Drooling
  • Refusal to eat
  • Reduced appetite
  • Pain around oral cavity
  • Irritability
These symptoms are usually indicative of a dental problem. Don't allow your pet to live with pain and discomfort. If you notice any of the signs listed above or anything else that concerns you, bring your animal to us as soon as possible.
