Our pets need regular professional dental care just like we do. Many dental problems go unnoticed by owners until there is an obvious issue, such as bad breath, mouth pain, tooth loss or loss of appetite. The mouth is the first segment of a pet's digestive tract, so many chronic issues such as vomiting, diarrhea, weight loss and infections can be attributed to poor dental health. These issues are all easily preventable with regularly scheduled dental cleaning and examinations. We use a combination of hand and ultrasonic scalers to clean the tartar and bacteria off of pet's teeth that build up over time (especially pets who don't brush regularly!).
The teeth of members of the equine species continually grow throughout their lifetime. After becoming domesticated and having their diets and daily routines altered by man, it became necessary to care for their teeth regularly so as to ensure they are grinding and digesting their feed properly. Poor dentition of the horse can be a painful condition, leading to infections, gum disease and tooth loss. It can also be the root of many major health issues, such as: weight loss and muscle atrophy, chronic or recurrent colic, poor performance, lack of response to the bit, gastrointestinal ulceration and more.
