There are three components to dental care: daily brushing, dental prophylaxis, and regular dental exams.
We can discuss many options and recommendations for at home dental care, including, brushing, dental treats and chews, water additives, oral gels, and more.
It is recommended that every pet have annual professional dental cleanings with full oral examination once they are adults. Certain breeds may require this treatment bi-annually.
Untreated dental disease is the leading cause of pain and suffering in our companion animals. Animals do not whine or complain about their dental pain because in a pack setting, this would show weakness, so many owners don't notice their pet's pain. Instead, you might notice bad breath or red and inflamed gums.
Other mammals need dental care too, not just dogs and cats! We may recommend dental care for you ferret, rabbit, or other pet too!
