Pet Dental Care
Dental disease can cause bad breath and a painful mouth and affect many body systems. Studies have shown that 70% of cats and 80% of dogs have dental disease by age three. When inflammation or infection from a pet’s mouth gets into the bloodstream, it can affect the pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart.
We recommend yearly dental exams and cleanings to help prevent periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can lead to infections and diseased teeth that need to be extracted. We will also take dental radiographs of your pet’s teeth to look for underlying conditions. Dental disease can often be present below the gums, while the visible crown is entirely regular.
