Humans go to the dentist every six months for a dental cleaning. However, we brush and floss every day and can still get cavities and gum disease. Your pet does not have the luxury of being able to brush and floss their teeth daily and often have gum disease very early on in their lives. Gum disease can cause bone loss, abscesses, tooth decay, and tooth loss. We suggest that once your pet turns one that you bring them in for regular dental checks. During the dental check, your pet’s gums and teeth will be evaluated and a plan of action will be given. We do dental x-rays, sedated cleanings, extractions, and much more.
