Staying on top of your pet’s oral health is a critical part of their overall quality of life. If oral health is not properly managed, your pet will likely have plaque and tartar buildup which can lead to gingivitis and periodontal disease. This can in turn cause bacteria to enter the bloodstream, possibly affecting vital organs including the kidneys, heart, lungs, liver, and brain. Periodontal disease can also cause bone loss which may require tooth extraction. Prevention is the best way to care for your pet’s oral health. Daily teeth-brushing and routine dental exams every 6-12 months are recommended. Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, and tooth extractions when needed.
