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!

      First, I want to say that I've never had a Facebook account. I just now created one for the sole purpose of commenting on this site. I took my sick cat, Quo, to Paw Prints and was devastated to find out she had an inoperable stomach tumor and there was no alternative but to put her down. It caught me completely by surprise; I was such an emotional wreck I didn't even stay to watch the procedure.
      That was a little over a week ago. Today I received a card from them in the mail expressing their condolences. That they would do such a thing to personally send me a card touched me. It shows that they truly care about pets, as well as the people who have them. I can't recommend them enough. Hell, I opened up a Facebook account just to do that. LOL
      Thank you very much for the card, Paw Prints. I'd vote 6 stars for you if I could.

      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 Love Paw Prints! The staff is awesome, and give me complete security in their concern and care of my little Chipin pup "Frisky". The follow-up calls to check in on him and ask how he is doing and addressing any of my concerns with how everything is affecting my 2.2 lb. Pup makes such a statement as to where their hearts lie. So glad I brought my baby to them. They are the best! ���
