Dogs and cats are generally subject to dental problems more so than people. Dogs will often break teeth when chewing on sticks, and bones. Plaque and tartar accumulate at a higher rate because of the absence of brushing. This leads to gum disease and halitosis and can often progress to tooth loss and oral pain. If you are able to brush your pet’s teeth it will help minimize their dental problems. We have all of the tools you will need to get started with brushing your dog’s teeth. When necessary, we can provide dental care such as cleaning and polishing, as well as tooth extraction. A dental exam is one part of your pet’s annual physical exam that allows us to detect and, if necessary treat dental problems before they become more serious.
Maintaining Oral Health in Addition to Brushing:
Prescription dental diets are available for dogs and cats that are proven to be effective in slowing plaque and tartar accumulation. We also have a variety of dental chews and treats that can help your pet maintain a healthier mouth. Our staff will be pleased to guide you in deciding what is best for your pet.
