Dental disease is one of the most common diseases veterinarians see in dogs and cats. It not only causes bad breath and gingivitis, but also makes your pet susceptible to oral infections that can spread to major organs. Most pets need their first dental cleaning by the age of 3, but some specific breeds of dogs and cats are prone to dental disease and could benefit from dental cleaning sooner.During your annual exam the veterinarian will grade your pets dental disease and make recommendations on how to improve your pets dental needs.
To help maintain fresh breath in your pet, we recommend brushing your pet’s teeth at least 3 times a week with a pet specific toothpaste and toothbrush.This helps prevent the accumulation of tartar, which leads to gingivitis and the development of dental disease. Although not as effective as brushing, dental treats can be given to your pet if brushing is not an option. When a dental cleaning is recommended for your pet, rest assured he or she will receive quality care by our highly trained staff.
