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.

Preventative care including weekly brushing, the use of dental rinses in the drinking water, and prescription diets 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.

Our recent expansion has allowed us to improve our dentistry “suite.” We have new state-of-the-art digital dental x-rays that allow us to take whole-mouth x-rays to make sure we are not missing any painful lesions in your pet. We have scaling, polishing, and drilling equipment comparable to human dentists. We take your pet’s dental health very seriously and as usual, pain management is an important part of our protocol.
