Dental disease is common in the dog and cat population. Routine care is recommended to monitor for early signs of periodontal disease. We provide routine dental prophylaxis, complete oral health exams, and minor oral surgery. Additionally, we can recommend appropriate dental preventative care. Signs of dental disease include halitosis (bad breath), bleeding from the gums, or discoloration of the teeth. Management of dental disease is an important aspect of wellness care, as certain conditions such as diabetes mellitus and cardiac conditions can be complicated by periodontal disease.
More information about dental disease and dental preventatives can be found at the Veterinary Oral Health Council website.
