While you may not be aware, regular dental care is as important to your pet as it is for you! Tarter and bacteria builds up on your pets’ teeth and can lead to tooth loss, abscesses, and sinus infections. It can even lead to more serious diseases such as kidney failure. Especially, for our older dogs and cats, regular dental care can lead to longer and higher quality life. Our dentals include ultrasonic cleaning, polishing, up to 3 extractions, and treatment of gums with a therapeutic laser to decrease pain and inflammation and help speed healing.
