Studies show that good dental care can add up to five years to your pet’s life. Veterinary dentistry is one of the most important and overlooked areas of pet health. More than 70% of cats and 80% of dogs show signs of oral disease by the age of three. Pet dental disease doesn’t affect just the mouth. It can lead to more serious health problems including heart, liver, and kidney disease.
Preventative care including weekly brushing, the use of dental rinses in the drinking water, and prescription diets can keep your pets teeth healthy. These things should be started at a young age to ensure success.
Our hospital provides total dental care should your pet need a trip to the vet because of their teeth. Our veterinary technicians scale and polish your pet’s teeth and our veterinarians treat diseased teeth or can extract them if necessary.
