According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 70% of adult cats and 80% of adult dogs show symptoms of oral disease.
If you’ve noticed yellowing of your pet’s teeth, bad breath, bleeding, or broken teeth, something just isn’t right. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health. If you are noticing issues, it could be as simple as tartar buildup. However, it could also be as serious as periodontal disease, a medical condition that can spread infection throughout your pet’s entire body.
In addition to brushing your pet’s teeth at home (daily, please!), we also recommend scheduling them for regular dental cleanings in our office. We have specialized Dental Technicians and they receive training every year.
Even better – we offer free dental exams, always! No appointment is needed for these free exams. Our team is here to discuss your pet’s oral health, and provide demonstrations and go over recommendations on the best possible dental care you can give to your pet.
Rest easy knowing that we use only the safest sedation products to ensure that your pet’s dental care will be handled in the most efficient, effective, and comfortable way possible.
Together we’ll work hard to help your pet achieve a clean, healthy smile for life!
