Dentistry

A full 85% of pets have periodontal disease by 3 years of age 

Signs of dental problems may include: 

  • Bad Breath

  • Yellow/brown crust on teeth

  • Red or bleeding gums

  • Change in chewing or eating habits

  • Dropping food while eating

  • Loose, chipped, broken or missing teeth

  • Change in behavior

  • Drooling

 

It should not be surprising that dental health requires professional cleaning regardless of whether the mouth in question belongs to a person, a dog, a cat, a horse, or some other animal. Home care of the tooth is never perfect and periodically tartar must be properly removed and the tooth surface properly polished and disinfected.  The professional cleaning performed at the veterinarian’s office is similar to what a person receives at their dentist’s office. 

Dental disease can lead to problems in the heart, liver, kidneys or other organs.  Your pet’s mouth may allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream and spread throughout the body.  Part of your pet’s treatment plan may include a professional dental cleaning under carefully monitored anesthesia.  We’ll provide antibiotics and pain medicine for your pet as needed.  Please contact us for more information and an estimate for your pet.
