A Special Note on Rabbit Dental Health
Have you heard of Acquired Dental Disease (ADD) in rabbits? It's often triggered by a poor diet, lack of vitamins, or just plain genetics. To keep those teeth in good shape, your rabbit needs fiber-rich foods like timothy hay every day. This can help prevent dental problems like misaligned teeth, painful abscesses, and more. The effects of ADD cannot be fully reversed, so prevention is the key to an ADD-free life for your rabbit.
Common Dental Issues in Reptiles
Our scaly companions are not exempt from dental issues, either. A poor diet and not enough UV light can lead to metabolic bone disease, which naturally affects the teeth. The good news? A balanced diet and proper lighting can help your pet dodge these issues.
Dental problems can seemingly sneak up on exotic pets, with them showing hardly any signs until the issue has worsened. That's why routine checkups are so vital! But if you notice anything odd—like your pet grinding their teeth, drooling more than usual, eating less, or having trouble chewing—let us know right away by calling (215) 995-4049 to book an appointment. We’ll get to the root of the issue and work out the best treatment for your pet.
