Animal Dentistry in Lakewood CA Area
Your pet's oral health is essential to their overall health and wellness. That's why it's vital to ensure that your furry baby gets good oral care. Your vet can prevent dental problems through routine oral care before they even get started. At Bloomfield Animal Hospital in Lakewood, California, your pet benefits from the comprehensive animal dentistry services they need for optimal oral health.

Importance of Quality Oral Care for Your Pet

Dogs and cats use their teeth extensively throughout their lifetime for eating, protection, and play. Annual dental visits and cleanings can help keep your pet's teeth in optimal health. Through routine dental exams, Dr. Jose Arambulo can uncover signs of dental issues that pose a risk to your pet's oral health. Early detection of these problems will enable your vet to nip them in the bud before they spread.

Like people, dogs and cats are susceptible to developing dental issues like:
  • Abscesses
  • Gum infections
  • Swollen or bleeding gums
  • Cracked or chipped teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Oral tumors and more
When these issues are left unchecked, they can cause significant oral and medical health problems. Periodontal gum disease, for example, will not only damage your pet's teeth but can infect their internal organs as well, putting them at risk of suffering from heart, liver, or kidney damage.
