Caring for our own dental health is a daily routine in our lives, including daily brushing and flossing as well as yearly cleanings and exams. Remember that our pets require regular professional dental care just like people do! Our hospital offers a thorough dental exam with every physical exam, and we will make dental recommendations if abnormalities are detected.
If our doctors find abnormalities with your pet’s teeth, we have the experience and equipment to handle your pet’s dental needs. Regular cleaning and polishing can remove unhealthy plaque that naturally builds up on your pet’s teeth. Over time, teeth may deteriorate, and extractions may become necessary. Our doctors can take care of your pet’s dental needs and help extend the health and lifespan of your pet through regular dental exams and procedures.
Dental health of your pet begins at home. Providing foods that are good for your pet’s teeth is essential. Regular brushing of your pet’s teeth with a veterinary approved paste can also help prevent periodontal disease. Our doctors and staff can teach you the best choices for food and daily home cleaning techniques to improve your pet’s oral hygiene.
Remember that most periodontal disease can be prevented through daily home care and professional exams and cleanings. Schedule your pet’s dental exam with our office today.
