New studies suggest that good dental care can add up to five years to your pet’s life. Dental care is one of the most overlooked areas of pet health. More than 70 percent of cats and 80 percent of dogs show signs of oral disease by the age of three. Dental disease doesn’t affect just the mouth. It can lead to more serious health problems including heart, liver and kidney disease.
Preventive care including frequent brushing, the use of dental rinses in the drinking water and prescription diets, and professional dental prophylaxis can keep your pets teeth healthy. These things should be started at a young age to ensure success.
Our hospital provides total dental care. Under general anesthesia, our veterinary staff scale and polish your pet’s teeth and extract them if necessary.
