Because dogs cannot brush or floss their own teeth, we see a lot of dental problems, especially as pets age. Teeth and gums tend to be out of the owner’s sight, and unless there is bleeding or very bad breath, oral infections will go unnoticed. Dental disease can contribute to poor overall health. We offer a full range of dental services such as cleaning, polishing, x-rays and extractions. All physical examinations include an examination of the oral cavity for oral disease, so we can make recommendations for your pet’s optimum oral health care.
What types of canine dental care services are offered at your clinic?
We offer oral examinations as part of each physical exam and if required, dental cleanings and polishing under anesthesia with x-rays and extractions if necessary.
How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?
Ideally you should try to brush your dog’s teeth once daily.
Why is oral and dental health important?
Oral and dental health is important as poor oral health can affect other organ systems adversely.
