Keeping with our theme this month of good oral hygiene and dental care for your pets, we decided to write a little bit about the importance of dental cleaning. Before we get to cleaning though, let's quickly cover what leads to tartar build-up and eventually dental disease. The following factors can contribute to dental disease in your dog or cat:

Breed: Some breeds have teeth that are overcrowded making it more difficult to keep teeth and gums clean.
Food: Wet or sticky food can lead to a more rapid buildup of plaque.
If your pet has developed tartar, it's time to consider a dental cleaning. We offer state of the art dental cleanings that include full mouth dental radiographs. If you haven't had your dog or cat in to see a professional for their cleaning, please consider doing so with us.
Our annual dental cleanings for dogs and cats include:
If you suspect that your pet has more serious issues with gingivitis, consult your veterinarian. There are many treatment options centered around diet that can positively impact your pet's dental health.
