Scheduling your own dental appointment? Don’t forget to make one for your pet too.
Regular dental appointments keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy. By taking care of their teeth now, they can avoid more serious health problems later in life.
During a typical dental care exam, we look for signs of dental problems or abnormalities and use our findings to create a personalized dental plan for your pet’s needs. We might also recommend a professional dental cleaning under anesthesia to remove plaque and take dental X-rays to investigate further under the gumline.
After the cleaning, we’ll give you extra tips to care for your pet’s oral hygiene. This may include brushing your pet’s teeth daily or providing appropriate dental chews, supplements, treats, or water additives. This combination of regular at-home care and professional veterinary dental cleaning will go a long way in keeping your pet’s teeth bright and healthy.
