Veterinary dentistry has become a significant part of pet care within the last 20 years. Your pet’s dental health is so important because every major organ and system is affected by it. Simply keeping your pet’s mouth clean and free of plaque, tartar, and gum disease will add as much as 2 yrs to the average life span for cats and dogs. If your pet has obvious dental problems we can help. At each annual physical exam and vaccination visit, the doctors will evaluate your pet’s dental health and make recommendations as needed for routine cleaning. This service is included in the annual comprehensive wellness physical exam.
