Dental Care for Dogs

Dental care is a vital part of your dog’s overall health and can help increase their quality of life. Oral disease can cause inappetence, pain and severe bad breath.

What types of canine dental care services are offered at your hospital?

Dental services offered are full dental cleaning with the ultrasonic scaler, hand scaling and polishing. Extractions are sometimes also needed depending on the patient’s tooth problems.

How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?

Brushing your dog’s teeth can be challenging. In a perfect world, a daily brushing would be best, but at least 3 times a week is a minimum.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Oral and dental health is important because it can reduce gingivitis and plaque build-up. Dental disease can also cause other internal infection issues, too, so it is always better to catch it early.
