Dental Health

Maintaining excellent dental health in your pet can substantially increase the quality and duration of their life. Poor oral health contributes to many diseases: heart, liver, kidney and joint disease (arthritis) for example.


80% of dogs and cats over the age of 3 have dental disease requiring  professional attention.      


Gum disease is common and it hurts. Just remember: if it would hurt you, it hurts them. “But they eat just fine” is never a good guide for you; their instincts are to eat regardless of the pain. Pets are much better at hiding pain than we are.  The changes we see in our patients’ health and behavior after dental work is amazing and we are proud of our results.


Contact us today to arrange an appointment to assess your pet’s dental health.
