Dog & Cat Dental Care

We LOVE Veterinary Dentistry

It may seem a little odd with all the bad breath and tooth decay, but your pet’s oral health is a particular interest of ours because it is one of the most important yet most neglected parts of our pets. Plaque, dangerous bacteria, painful tooth decay, gingivitis, and damaged teeth all truly impact your pet’s overall health. Bad breath is an often overlooked sign that damage is being done.

Did you know that the bacteria in a dog or cat’s mouth that is thriving in the plaque on the teeth and in the pockets of the gums is proven to contribute to heart, liver, and kidney problems? Any one of these will shorten life span, but there is no reason to think only one would be impacted.

Did you know that pets often need teeth cleanings to remove plaque and calculus or oral surgery to extract damaged teeth just like humans do? Much of the plaque in the mouth isn’t even visible above the gumline.

Our Approach to Dentistry

Our doctors work with our clients and patients to develop good preventative habits and care, first and foremost, just like your dentist does with your human family. We have tips and guidance on brushing, what products work well for this, advice on getting your pet used to letting you care for his or her teeth, etc. Feel free to ask us questions!

We recommend dental prophylaxis procedures as needed for individual pets. This amounts to a thorough cleaning using special instruments and also gives us the opportunity to thoroughly inspect every tooth and its surrounding gum tissue for signs of damage or infection, including the use of dental x-rays as required.  These procedures are recommended in stages, or levels, based on the initial condition of the dog or cat’s mouth.

“I am passionate about dentistry and oral health. I feel that a healthy mouth helps promote overall good health and longevity. One of the best things our clients can do for their pets is to help prevent oral injuries and pursue regular dental care.”
