Dental Care

Bad teeth/periodontal disease (bad gums) are two of the most common diseases in the dogs and cats!  About 70-80% of our dogs and cats have some form of the diseases and are susceptible to pain, bad breath and tooth loss when neglected.  Long term periodontal disease can spread infections to the heart, liver, lungs, and kidneys, where life threatening damage can occur.  Proper dental hygiene is as important for your pet as it is for you.

We use an ultrasonic scalar to clean your pet's teeth and then apply fluoride polishes to your pet's teeth.  In addition, a sealer called Oravet to your pet's teeth to slow down the plaque formation that starts the process all over again.  We also carry oral hygiene supplies which you are able to use at home to assist in maintaining good oral hygiene of your loved ones.  Ask one of the assistants for more information about these products or click here to learn more about proper dental hygiene

 

Let us work together to allow your pets to live a longer more comfortable time with you.
