Dentistry

Do you shy away from kisses and close cuddles with your animal 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 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 Paw Prints Animal Hospital 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 loved one.

In addition to our professional dental care, we’ll also work closely with you to ensure that your best friend’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 animal family member once again. The comprehensive dental services at Paw Prints Animal Hospital can help get you there!

      The vets have always been helpful, professional, and kind... however, the staff is very hit or miss. Following a wonderfully handled bad experience where they diagnosed our dog and very humanely ended her suffering we have been in contact all week about boarding our other dog next week. Paw Prints requires a bordetella vaccine be within the last 6 months to be valid. We were told that because our dog has been seen here before that we wouldn’t need an appointment or dr visit just to receive a vaccine. Well, we brought the dog and made a visit... only to find out that we had been misinformed.

      No attempt to make right what they screwed up... it’s better to have me leave upset and go where I should have gone for vaccines anyway - the Greenville Humane Society. They are cheaper, and things like this don’t happen.

      So, I highly recommend the vets at paw prints... just be prepared to get questions concerning their processes and services answered incorrectly and them not do anything to correct their mistakes.

      I have been using Dr. Critten, for 15 years or more as my vet since he started his practice. He and Dr Cousin I would highly recommend. Very good vets.

      We have been clients of Pawprints since Dr Crittendon opened. Absolutely love them. Just want to give them praise for last Friday’s appt with all this Covid 19. One of our dogs had an appointment for her check up. I was a little concerned about taking her and being in a waiting room. When I arrived, there was a sign on the door. You could check in from your car, wait In your car, and they would come get you when ready for your appointment. It worked so well. They did an awesome job. And I got to see a doctor I had never seen before. Dr Hunt was amazing and so good with our Charlee Grace. She made our rescue feel so much more calm than Charlee usually is at the vet. Thank you Pawprints.

      I have been going to Paw Prints for several years now. I recently had to bring my kitty in in an emergency due to flea treatment poisoning. I was panicking for my kitty and they were friendly and calming through the whole experience.They were super nice and helpful! Paw Prints has super affordable pricing.They even called the next day to check on her and make sure she was doing better! I highly recommend them!
