Dental Pet Care
Dental care is important to your pet's health. Dental pain is an often overlooked and unnecessary problem that can easily be avoided with quality dental care. According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have oral disease by the age of 3.
The American Animal Hospital Association recommends regular oral examinations and dental cleanings, under general anesthesia, for all adult dogs and cats. A veterinarian should evaluate your pet’s dental health at least once a year. This is recommended because bacteria and food debris accumulates around a pet’s teeth and, if left unchecked, will lead to deterioration of the soft tissue and bone surrounding the teeth. This decay results in irreversible periodontal disease and even tooth loss. We can recommend and demonstrate preventative measures you can begin at home. Our wellness program emphasizes and explains how you can avoid costly dental procedures with your pet in the future.
