Dental Care

Dental care is important to the health and longevity of your pet. Letting tooth plaque and gingivitis go unchecked can cause issues for the kidneys, heart, immune system, and overall health.

Good preventative care at home, as well as quality professional cleanings, can help keep your pet healthy longer into their senior years.

Many pets do not show evidence of oral disease, but owners can be surprised by their improvement after a cleaning and removal of diseased teeth.
