Dental care is vital to the health of your companion. Dental disease can lead to several issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, over 80% of canines and 70% of felines over age three have some form of dental disease. This makes it the most common problem in our pet population.
Even though home care such as brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection will help, the most effective way to prevent dental disease is to have professional cleanings performed.
Our veterinarians, and highly trained technicians are able to perform thorough dental cleanings with an ultrasonic scaler that help remove tartar and debris that you might not be able to access with home care. During dental cleanings, patients are placed under general anesthesia and monitored throughout the entire procedure.
