Dentistry

Good oral health is an important part of good general health for your pet.

Signs of oral and dental diseases in dogs and cats:

  • Bad breath.
  • Loose teeth or teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar.
  • Your pet shies away from you when you touch the mouth area.
  • Drooling or dropping food from the mouth.
  • Bleeding from the mouth.
  • Loss of appetite or loss of weight (this combination can result from diseases of many organs, and early veterinary examination is important).

When choosing your pet’s dental care, it’s important to learn about a comprehensive veterinary dental cleaning, also known as a professional dental cleaning, and its long term benefits for your pet’s overall health.

Prevention of the most common oral disease in pets consists of frequent removal of the dental plaque and tartar that forms on teeth that are not kept clean. Not sure if your dog or cat needs a dental cleaning? You can make an appointment for a brief exam by one of our veterinarians who will guide you on your pet’s needs.

**Please note that we offer an optional service, Oravet, which is the application of a protective barrier that reduces the amount of plaque buildup. This sealant extends the length of your pet’s dental cleaning! Ask us about Oravet at your next visit!
