Comprehensive Cat and Dog Dental Care

Fitting regular dental care in your cat or dog’s routine is a critical part of their oral and overall health. But sadly, most pets don’t receive the proper oral hygiene care they require to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

Our staff provides dental health education to all pet owners to teach them how to implement at-home dental care for their pets.

Pet Teeth Cleaning & Exams

Your pet’s dental checkup is like taking them to a cat/dog dentist. You should bring them in for a dental examination at least once yearly; pets more prone to dental conditions might have to see us more frequently.

Our vets can assess, diagnose, and treat dental health problems in both cats and dogs.

  • Dental exams
  • Teeth Cleaning & Polishing
  • Full mouth extractions
  • Dental X-rays
  • Oral surgery (including tooth extractions and gum disease treatment)


If you see any symptoms below in your pet, bring them in for a dental checkup.

  • Tartar buildup
  • Loose and/or broken teeth
  • Extra teeth or retained baby teeth
  • Bleeding from the mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Pain or swelling in or around the mouth
  • Reduced appetite or refusal to eat
  • Abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
  • Discolored teeth


We will complete a thorough pre-anesthetic physical assessment for your pet prior to the dental exam.

We will take blood to ensure it’s safe for your cat or dog to undergo anesthesia. We might also conduct additional diagnostics.

When your pet is under anesthesia, we will perform a complete oral examination (tooth by tooth) and charting.


Why do pets need their teeth cleaned?
Cats and dogs can develop periodontal disease or tooth decay as a consequence of poor oral health, just like humans.

When our pets eat, plaque sticks to their teeth and can build up into tartar if not brushed away routinely.

This can cause infections in the mouth, periodontal disease, tooth decay, and even loose or missing teeth. This makes regular dental care essential to preventing pain or disease in the gums.

What long-term problems can poor oral health potentially cause in my pet?
Other than causing problems like cavities, bad breath, and severe periodontal disease, oral health issues and conditions can lead to disease in the liver, kidney, heart, and other areas of your pet’s body.

Cysts or tumors can also develop, or your pet might not feel well in general. In addition, diseases related to oral health conditions can shorten your cat or dog’s lifespan and cause significant pain.

Regular dental care is vital to your pet’s physical health and well-being.
