Dental Care for Dogs

The American Veterinary Medical Association lists periodontal dental disease as the number one ailment affecting our dogs. We frequently encounter red, sore gums, broken teeth, and bad breath during our examinations. These are symptoms of periodontal disease necessitating prompt pain-free dental care.

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?


We have a state of the art dental suite offering dental scaling and cleaning, intra-oral digital radiography to examine the roots and the bone structure and provide tooth extractions as needed.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?


Daily brushing using an approved veterinary toothpaste and toothbrush is the best way to prevent the accumulation of plaque forming tartar.

Why is oral and dental health important?


Periodontal disease is commonly seen in animals as young as 3 years of age. This can present as red sore gums, bad breath or even a sensitivity to chewing food. Studies have associated bacteria in the mouth with periodontal disease, which can lead to heart, kidney, and liver disease as well.
