Tips and Tricks for Dog Dental Care

Without regular dental care at Kindred Care Pet Hospital, your dogs can develop cavities, abscesses, and tooth pain just like people do. You might be surprised to find out that dogs need both in-home and professional canine dental care support to keep their teeth and gums stay in great shape. You can utilize the three following tips to provide your dog with quality canine dental care through every stage of life.

Utilize an Enzymatic Toothpaste Recommended by Your Veterinarian

A strong enzymatic toothpaste not only helps mechanically remove plaque and food debris, but also dissolves the pellicle on the teeth. This pellicle, or bio-film, can harbor harmful bacteria if not regularly removed from the teeth. In fact, you must remove this film on a daily basis to provide adequate protection against cavities and gum disease.

Brush Regularly Using the Most Effective Techniques

Your pet should have their teeth cleaned each and every day using high quality tools and products. You will need to teach your pet how to sit still and accept the brushing sessions using positive reinforcement techniques. Once your pet complies with the process, you can easily remove food debris and plaque on the teeth to restore their shine. The brushing sessions also help to remove debris below the gum line to prevent gum disease.

Acquire Professional Canine Dental Care

Take your pet into your Pet hospital on a regular basis for canine dental care. The professional cleaning sessions help remove all the plaque from tooth surfaces, including below the gum-line. Your dog will need to be sedated for this process.

If you need professional canine dental care for your dog, call 281-265-0009 to contact the team at Kindred Care Pet Hospital in Richmond, TX and make an appointment.

     Dear Clients, 

 The implications of the COVID-19 are concerning to all. Our top priority is to protect the health and well-being of our staff, clients and community members. Having said that, we will be taking some precautionary measures and actions to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with the CDC recommendations; wEARING OF MASK, Hand washing and social distancing guidelines have been implemented. Team members who are not feeling well or have potential exposure to COVID-19 are being asked to stay at home. We have implemented an increased scope and frequency of cleaning in our facility. Surfaces that are touched frequently are being cleaned often and wiped down. Hand sanitizers are placed in multiple locations. We are encouraging drop off appointments, while spacing out the appointments that absolutely cannot be dropped off in hope of limiting face to face time while ensuring that our patients are getting all of the care needed. We encourage quick hand-off of your pets to clinic staff. In some situations, a case by case analysis of the situation may be considered as far as coming in to the hospital.  We want to thank all our dear clients for your understanding and cooperation in these challenging times.  This too shall pass. 

 Thanks, Dr. Fidelis & Staff.
