Why is dental care essential for cats and dogs?
Proper dental care is more than just maintaining a pretty smile; it's a critical aspect of your pet's overall health. Dental issues like plaque buildup, tartar, and gum disease can lead to discomfort, pain, and even impact their overall well-being. Regular dental cleanings and check-ups can prevent dental problems from progressing and help us catch any issues early on, ensuring a happy and pain-free life for your pet.
How often should my pet undergo dental check-ups?
We recommend regular dental check-ups for your pet, just like you would visit the dentist. The frequency of check-ups may vary depending on your pet's age, breed, and overall oral health. For most pets, an annual dental examination is ideal. However, some pets may require more frequent visits if they are prone to dental issues (especially in older dogs and cats!). Our experienced veterinarians will assess your pet's individual needs and create a personalized dental care plan.
Is dental treatment safe for my pet?
Yes. Our dental procedures are performed with the utmost care and attention to ensure your pet's well-being. Before any treatment, we conduct a thorough dental examination and may recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork to assess their overall health if it has not been performed in the last few months. During dental procedures, your pet will be under general anesthesia and monitored closely by our skilled team.
