Why dental care is important
Just like with your own teeth, your pet's plaque and tartar build-up can lead to gingivitis. If you avoid dental cleanings, periodontal disease can set in leading to even larger problems for your pet's health.
Here you can see an example before and after of a pet who has had a dental cleaning.
A professional dental cleaning is required to remove plaque and tartar from your pet’s teeth and to assess the health of the mouth. This requires that your pet be under anesthesia. Before we start the process of cleaning, your pet will get a complete physical exam. You can rest assured your pet will be safe and comfortable while going through this process.
