Dental Care

While animals can’t get dental cavities, they can suffer from fractured teeth, stomatitis (in cats), oral masses, and periodontal disease.  Periodontal, or gum disease, is an infection of the gums that results from a buildup of plaque on the teeth. If left untreated, it can be painful for your pet, result in tooth loss, and, in serious cases, spread to the vital organs.

We recommend annual dental checkups where your pet is safely put under anesthesia to have a thorough dental exam, x-rays, and cleaning.  This preventative maintenance can go a long way to making your pet more comfortable and even catching a potential illness early.
