"Keeping Pets Healthy" starts with regular preventative care.  Our preventative care services include:

Dentistry

Regular dental care can add year's of quality to your pets life.  Dental care begins with identifying early signs of dental disease during a wellness exam.  Plaque and tarter accumulation results in bacteria breaking down the attachment of the tooth crown to the gums.  Once this attachment is compromised, the bacteria migrate to the tooth root and cause an abscess and breakdown of the periodontal ligament which holds the tooth root in the socket.  Tooth root abscesses and periodontal ligament damage can lead to bacterial infections spreading to other major organs such as the heart and kidneys and lead to tooth loss.  We often see patients with tooth root abscesses that require surgical extraction.

Preventative dental scaling and polishing of teeth under anesthesia help prevent this process from happening.
