Pet Dental Care
Protect Your Pet’s Oral Health
Just like you, your pet’s oral health impacts the rest of their health, which is why you need to schedule regular dental care. Even if their teeth look clean, bacteria could be growing where you can’t see — below the gum line. This can lead to damage in your pet’s teeth, gums, and more.
Without regular dental-exams and teeth cleaning, your dog is susceptible to dental disease. Furthermore, oral bacteria can also enter your pet’s bloodstream, increasing oral infections risks.
We use the tools and procedures that will not only thoroughly clean your pet’s teeth, but will also eliminate tartar and plaque to protect them from various dental problems. Give your pet the dental care they need with superior dental care services from Mercy Animal Hospital in Edmonton. We are a trusted clinic offering high-quality pet dental care services in Edmonton. We are committed to providing the best care by understanding and addressing your pet’s unique needs.
Our veterinarians are highly trained and offer a warm and friendly environment for you and your pets. Once your pet is referred to our facility, we employ a comprehensive approach alongside ultra-modern equipment to examine your pet and determine the possible issue.
Pet Dental Disease
Most pets suffer dental disease. Therefore, it is important to practice proper oral hygiene on your pets. We recommend scheduling regular visits to an animal hospital for checkups. Taking your fur friend to a pet clinic will help highlight dental issues and prompt quick treatment.
Our personnel are highly trained in pet dental health and can identify dental disease symptoms like bad breath, rubbing at the mouth, drooling, appetite loss, and strange chewing. Dental diseases like gingivitis and periodontitis are uncomfortable to pets and become painful with time. A vet will look at the pet’s mouth to identify signs of inflammation that indicate gingivitis. They will also check for tartar on your animals’ teeth. After the assessment, your vets will begin the treatment phase and ensure your pet is in good health.
Common warning signs of dental disease in pets:
Red or inflamed gums
Stained teeth or gums
Loose, missing, or cracked teeth
Difficulty with eating hard foods
Reluctance to eat

Top Rated Local® Pet Dental Care in Edmonton
As a pet owner, there are a number of things you can do to promote good oral health in your pet. While brushing your pet’s teeth may be an obvious first step, it may not be the easiest depending on your pet’s behavior or personality. If brushing your pet’s teeth is a non-starter, be sure to let us know, and one of the trained veterinary technicians at Mercy Animal Hospital can perform this simple procedure in our office. There are several other things you can do to promote good oral health for your fur baby, including:
Water additives — helps your pet maintain fresh breath and breaks up plaque
Dental chews — breaks up plaque and cleans your pet’s teeth
Dental cleaning chew toys — cleans your pet’s teeth as he or she chews on the toy
When you schedule a dental cleaning for your pet, we will perform a dental exam to check for signs of disease and plaque. Based on our findings, we might recommend teeth cleaning or another treatment. A pet’s teeth cleaning is similar to what you experience at the dentist. We will scrape off any plaque and polish the enamel. Bacteria tend to build up above and below the gum line. Our Edmonton vets will polish and descale these areas using state-of-the-art tools to ensure they are well-cleaned. In situations where a tooth cannot be saved, we can perform an extraction. This procedure will eliminate infection and protect the health of their mouth.
