Pet Dentist Services

Pets need dental care too. This will definitely give your pets something to smile about! Preventative dental maintenance is vital to the health and happiness of your pets. Dental disease such as periodontal disease and tooth root infections are extremely common among dogs and cats. The pain and suffering of these diseases can be avoided with our pet dentist services.

 

Since pets can’t communicate discomfort, they often go years without the proper care needed for there ailments. This is why regular checks can go a long way in saving your pets life. Bacteria and tartar buildup in the mouth can directly affect the heart, liver, and kidneys.

 

This is not just for older pets but younger ones too. Did you know: The American Veterinary Dental Society states that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by the age of three show signs of oral disease. This highlights a very scary truth about poor dental care. Your pets deserve to live a long healthy life. The good news is that preventative dental care can greatly reduce your pet’s chances of contracting a disease and lead to a longer life! As a rule of thumb, we recommend you get your pet’s teeth checked and cleaned once a year.
