Does your furry family member have bad breath? Contrary to popular belief, this isn’t just something you simply have to live with as a pet owner. In fact, bad breath can be a sign that your pet may be suffering from a serious dental problem. If not properly cared for, bacteria can form on your pet’s teeth and under the gum line, eventually leading to dental disease, a serious condition that affects many adult dogs and cats, and can wreak havoc throughout the entire body. The good news is, with the proper care and intervention, you can help your pet beat the odds and enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.
Our team of highly skilled veterinary professionals is experienced in all aspects of pet dental care. We offer both routine preventative dental care services, including exams and cleanings, as well as the treatment and management of existing oral health problems, such as the extraction of broken or loose teeth and minor oral surgery, as needed. We also utilize dental x-ray technology to further assess your pet’s dental health.
In addition to our professional dental care services, we also believe firmly that you, as a responsible pet owner, play an equally important role in managing your companion’s oral health.
