Dental Care

With knowledgeable staff on hand and the right tools for clinical treatment, there is much The Dog, Cat and Bird Clinic can do to keep your pet's teeth and gums healthy. Most important of all, we recommend annual check-ups as the best way to keep up with your feline or canine companion's oral health.

 

Dental Care Services for Cats and Dogs

 

When your pet comes in for a dental appointment, they will be seen by an experienced veterinarian for a general oral exam and cleaning. Our compassionate staff members provide cleaning, scaling and polishing services with a gentle hand, keeping your pet's well-being in mind and minimizing pain as much as possible. We also have the ability to detect issues below the gum line with the assistance of digital dental X-ray, performing basic dental surgery and extractions of infected or damaged teeth as needed. Should your pet require advanced surgical attention, a veterinary dental specialist is available for referral.

 

Caring for Your Pet's Teeth at Home

 

Current research in veterinary medicine continues to further our understanding of how dental health can contribute or detract from health over all. Just as in humans, pets require regular attention to their teeth and gums in order to stay healthy and prevent the complications that can arise as a result of poor dental maintenance. In addition to bringing your cat or dog in for a yearly exam and cleaning, our veterinarians also recommend taking care at home by choosing toys, treats, pet foods, and daily teeth brushing for your pets to contribute to good oral health. We are happy to consult with you about the little choices that can make the biggest difference in keeping your pet healthy.
