Understanding Pet Dentistry

Pet dentistry involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental diseases in animals. Just like humans, pets can suffer from dental issues such as plaque buildup, tartar, gingivitis, and periodontal disease. Regular dental care is crucial to prevent these problems and keep your pet healthy and comfortable.

When to Tell If a Pet Needs Dental Care

It’s important to watch for signs that your pet may need dental care, including:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Yellow or brown buildup on teeth
  • Difficulty or pain while eating
  • Drooling more than usual

Our Pet Dentistry Services

  • Dental X-Rays: We use dental X-rays to assess your pet’s oral health below the gumline.

Benefits of Pet Dentistry

  • Improved Oral Health: Regular dental care can prevent dental disease and improve your pet’s overall health.
