It’s important for dogs and cats to see a dentist regularly. Your pet’s oral health is directly connected to their overall health.
Prevention, treatment, and maintenance of your pet’s dental health is very important.
Don’t Wait To Take Care Of Your Pet’s Teeth
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!).
Dental Care Is Essential For Horses
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 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.
