Pet Dentistry

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of 3.  Proper oral hygiene is an important part of health, and your pet's oral health is directly related to their overall health. If you are noticing issues, it could simply be a tartar build-up problem, or it may be something more serious like periodontal disease which is a medical condition that can spread infection throughout the whole body. Through routine dental cleanings and preventative care, hopefully your pet can avoid other, more complicated procedures.


Some signs of dental problems in your pet

  • bad breath

  • yellow or brown teeth

  • loose, broken or missing teeth
