Dental Care

Dental disease is very common in animals with approximately 85% of pets developing some form of periodontal disease by the time they are three years old.  Just as in humans, dental disease is painful, but because our pets do not have the same ability to communicate their discomfort as we do, until relatively recently a lot of their dental problems were overlooked.  Additionally, an unhealthy mouth can lead to other problems such as bad breath, tooth loss, and in more severe instances, liver and heart disease.  Signs of dental problems in your pet may include bad breath, red swollen gums, eating difficulties, yellow/brown tartar build up on teeth and drooling.

We appreciate that dental care is a vital part of your pet’s preventive health care plan so particular attention is paid to the gums and teeth during your pet’s annual health exam.  Our healthcare team is always on hand to advise you on all aspects of your pet’s dental hygiene, including proper diet and tooth brushing.

We also offer our clients and their pets a complete array of veterinary dental care services including comprehensive dental cleanings, tooth extractions and other pet dental procedures.
