Why is dental care so important?
Did you know that 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease? Dental disease can be the origin of more complex, life-threatening issues in pets of all ages. Routine dental cleanings and a home dental care regime have the potential to add years of vigor to your pet’s life. A dental exam and cleaning are performed under general anesthesia for a safe and thorough procedure. Your pet’s teeth are cleaned of plaque and calculus, and the tooth enamel is polished, followed by a fluoride treatment to further protect the teeth and strengthen enamel. In some cases, we do recommend annual dental cleanings to ensure your pet’s smile stays bright and healthy.

What we do:
Oral health is vital to your pet’s overall well-being. As a pet owner, you should be examining your pet’s teeth on a regular basis to check for signs of dental disease. The symptoms of dental disease include:
- Bleeding gums
- Red, inflamed gums
- Discolorations on the teeth and gums
- Discomfort while eating
- Reluctance to eat
- Sores in the mouth
- Loose, chipped, cracked, or missing teeth
- Very bad breath
If your pet displays any of the above symptoms, this could be a clear sign that your pet needs to have his or her teeth examined and cleaned.
