Dental Care

Imagine what your teeth would be like if you never cleaned them. The same thing happens to your pet’s teeth without good oral care! Keeping your pet’s teeth clean is about more than just fresh breath—when periodontal disease becomes advanced, harmful bacteria can spread from the mouth and damage a pet’s liver, kidneys, and heart. 

We consider dental care an essential aspect of our preventive care mandate, and our facility hosts a newly renovated dental suite. Each dental patient is thoroughly assessed before anesthesia and monitored with advanced equipment during the procedure. Brushing your pet’s teeth at home is a great way to extend the amount of time between professional cleanings, and we’re happy to show you how to do it!
