We Love Veterinary Dentistry!
When your pet has healthy teeth and gums, your pet has a better quality of life. That’s because good dental care can prevent and mitigate tooth pain and periodontal disease. Keeping up with a dental cleaning schedule for your pet can help you avoid unnecessary medical problems in the future.
Dental Disease in Pets
Did you know that most dental disease occurs below the gum line? That means it’s not always detected during routine examinations. Our dental digital X-rays are a diagnostic tool that helps us locate cavity and tooth root issues, which are the main source of chronic oral pain.
By 3 years of age, most pets have some sign of periodontal disease. Without proper treatment, infections that start in the mouth can travel through the bloodstream and negatively affect vital organs.
It doesn’t have to be that way. Our mobile clinic is a sanitary environment where we can safely place your pet under anesthesia and perform the cleaning or extraction procedure. Whether you visit us in our office or we bring the mobile clinic to you, you can be sure your pet will have access to safe, effective dental treatments.

Routine Pet Dental Care
We recommend getting a dental cleaning for your pet once a year to maintain optimal oral health. If you notice any of the following, you should schedule an appointment:
- Fractured, broken, loose, discolored or missing teeth
- Bleeding, swollen or painful gums
- Strong breath odor
- Drooling or salivating excessively
- Difficulty/hesitancy with chewing, eating or swallowing
- Asymmetry with jaw, swelling under eyes
