Dental Care

Dental hygiene is an important part of your pet’s health because dental disease can be associated with other serious health problems such as heart disease and kidney disease. But how do you know if your pet has a healthy mouth? Let us examine your pet’s teeth and gums to help determine if there are any dental issues you should know about.

After a brief visual examination, we may recommend a more detailed examination (which requires sedation), a dental cleaning, or options for at-home dental care. We offer dental cleaning, with the best results achieved with anesthesia for complete cleaning and polish. A dental sealant is applied to delay plaque build-up. Tooth extractions are performed if indicated by dental x-rays and exam. Non-anesthesia dental care can be provided in some cooperative patients.
