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 the life of your pet.

Our experienced staff will 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, the use of dental rinses in the drinking water and even prescription diets when necessary.

Good dental health also calls for regular dental checkups and teeth cleaning.
