Treats and Home Care

You may have wondered what is the healthiest and safest method for cleaning your pet's teeth and providing a healthy snack. Brushing their teeth with a veterinary approved tooth brush and paste is your best and first choice. This will remove the bacteria and accumulating tartar quite effectively, especially if brushing daily. Hard, crunchy snacks or specific dental treats are recommended. All products should be purchased through your veterinarian. If purchased elsewhere, make sure it is a product of the Unites States. Certain dog and cat snacks can cause vomiting and diarrhea when shipped from other countries. Watch your pet closely when they are playing or chewing that they do not swallow the entire object or a large portion of it, especially a new product. Their eagerness to eat it can get them into trouble. Other oral care options are water additives and sealants. Ask our veterinarians for the best recommendations for your family friend.

Comprehensive Oral Health Care and Assessments

Did you know that pets rarely show symptoms until the potential disease is well advanced? Contrary to popular belief, your pet's breath shouldn't smell bad! Odor is one of the first signs of infection and disease. This is why it is important to pay close attention to your dog's or cat's oral health.

All of our patients receive state of the art anesthesia, monitoring and personal TLC through out every treatment. Each procedure includes full mouth x-rays, complete dental charting, scaling, polishing, as well as gingival probing and assessment. Our x-ray technology allows us to assess what's going on below the gum line, where so much disease goes undiagnosed and untreated, leading to pain, infection and destruction of the surrounding bone and neighboring teeth.

Please schedule an appointment today for a comprehensive oral examination. We will provide you with a full report on your pet's oral condition.
