Dental Services for Your Furry Friend

What many pet owners lovingly refer to as “dog breath” may be a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Dental care is one of the most overlooked areas of pet health, with more than 70% of cats and 80% of dogs showing signs of oral disease by the age of three.

Dental disease doesn’t just affect the mouth; it can lead to more serious health problems including heart, liver, and kidney disease. Studies suggest that good dental health can add up to five years to your pet’s life.

Our experienced staff can examine your pet’s teeth and gums to determine if there are any dental issues that need to be treated. Fortunately, many dental problems can be prevented at home through daily brushing, dental rinses in drinking water, and even prescription diets when necessary.

How often should I schedule dental cleanings for my pet?

Regular dental cleanings are typically recommended every 6 to 12 months, depending on your pet's oral health needs and risk factors. Our veterinarians can provide personalized recommendations based on your pet's dental examination.

What are the signs of dental problems in pets?

Common signs of dental issues in pets include bad breath, swollen or bleeding gums, difficulty chewing, drooling, and reluctance to eat. If you notice any of these signs, we recommend scheduling a dental examination for your pet promptly.

Good dental health also calls for regular dental checkups and teeth cleaning. We encourage you to download our brochure on pet dental disease to learn more!
