Taking care of your loyal companion’s oral health with professional help from your veterinarian.
Dental care is something that most humans practice daily for themselves, but in most cases is neglected in pets. Many pets develop dental disease from an early age because they don't receive any form of dental care. At our hospital, we prioritize your pet's teeth and gums to keep diseases away.
When your pet's mouth isn't cared for, bacteria and food debris will accumulate around their teeth which leads to decay or tooth loss. Additionally, when your pet develops infections in their mouth, it spreads via the bloodstream to the liver, heart, lungs, and kidneys, causing even more damage. Even if you believe that your pet's oral health is good, there may be signs of dental disease that are just normalized; a good example is bad breath. Here are some other signs of dental disease:

Brushing their teeth daily is one of the most effective ways to keep dental disease at bay. It helps to start this practice earlier on when your pet is young so they can have it in their routine.

Regardless of whether you brush your pet's teeth, they will still need yearly assessments by a veterinarian.
