Full Service Pet Dental Care

While most pet owners are very dedicated to their companions with regards to their nutrition, wellness checks and even spending time together, many owners don't realize the importance of pet dental care.  Be it plaque control, cavity prevention or bad breath, the truth is dental disease can cause serious health problems.

Did you know 70-80% of dogs and cats develop dental disease by the age of 3. The continuous buildup of plaque and tartar can damage your pets internal organs, not just his mouth. 

Before Dental

After Dental

Professional Cleaning

During your pet's annual wellness exam, we will assess your pet's teeth and gums. Our diagnosis will determine if your pet would benefit from a professional cleaning. 

Our professional cleaning will include complete ultrasonic scaling, subgingival cleaning, polishing and fluoride treatment.  We have added digital dental x-rays so we can better diagnose dental disease that isn't visible to the eye. Anesthesia is necessary to perform a thorough and efficient dental cleaning. We take every precaution possible to minimize anesthetic risks to your pet. After a professional cleaning, your pet's mouth will be healthy again and free of pain. 

Care at Home

Now your furry companion will need your help. Just like after your visit to the dentist, your pet will start developing plaque within hours of a professional cleaning. You can help your pet maintain good oral health and prolong time between professional cleanings with regular home dental care. Our veterinarians recommend brushing your pets teeth daily. Providing tartar control chews and bones can also help with tarter buildup. 

Please contact us if you have any questions about at home dental care for your pet.
