Dental Care

Your pet’s teeth develop plaque and tartar buildup from bacteria and food just like human teeth do. Routine brushing at home and professional cleanings in hospital annually can help prevent the development of periodontal disease. If allowed to progress, periodontal disease can cause severe damage to the gums and underlying bone as well as tooth loss and local or systemic infection.  We also offer digital dental radiography which allows us to thoroughly evaluate your pet’s oral health. There are many underlying pathologies that cannot be detected by oral exam alone.

Below are examples of the difference a dental cleaning can make!

Canine - Before                                                                   Canine - After


Feline - Before                                                                   Feline - After
