Dental Care for Dogs

Dental care in animals is one of the most important areas to focus on, as 80% of animals over 3 years of age, develop some form of dental disease. Poor dental health can have a serious negative impact on other body systems, such as the heart and kidneys, especially as your pet ages. We try to incorporate a dental health program into your pet’s life, right from the beginning. This is accomplished through brushing, dental diets, dental treats, chews and toys, and if necessary, a dental cleaning under anesthetic.

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?

We offer a range of products to help you keep your pet’s teeth clean. We can teach you how to properly brush your dog’s teeth and have a variety of pet toothpaste to try. We sell different brands of dental hygienic foods designed to provide a fully balanced diet while helping to remove and prevent tartar formation on the teeth. In cases where the dental disease has progressed beyond what simple brushing and dietary changes can solve, we offer full dental scaling and polishing. This is a surgical procedure that removes all tartar and deals with any fractured or infected teeth.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?

It is recommended that we brush our dog’s teeth every day to effectively prevent dental disease.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Dental health is so important because it affects every animal. An animal who receives no dental care is at risk for pain and infection associated with dental disease. As the animal ages, the dental disease progresses and bacteria from the mouth is able to infiltrate other bodily systems, especially the heart and the kidneys. Poor dental health has shown to be directly related to heart and kidney disease in older animals.
