Keep Your Pet's Mouth Healthy
Periodontal or dental disease is the most frequent problem diagnosed by small animal veterinarians. Eighty percent of all dogs and cats over 2-3 years old suffer from this problem and require treatment. After we determine your pet's degree of periodontal disease, we will formulate a plan. It may be as simple as daily tooth brushing, or we may advise a dental cleaning, which requires general anesthesia.
We will know if any further procedures are necessary, such as an extraction after a thorough exam. The application of an anti-plaque substance is then generally applied to strengthen the teeth as well as help decrease plaque buildup. Home dental care is critical; we will teach you how to care for your pet's teeth between dental visits. Daily care is important, and we have all the supplies to get you started.
