Pets suffer from the same dental disease processes as humans. Regular dental care is vital in maintaining your pet’s oral and general health. Plaque and tartar formation can cause gingivitis, periodontitis and in more severe cases may even cause gum, tooth and bone loss. Bacteria from chronically diseased gums may be spreading throughout the body via the bloodstream and may compromise kidney, liver and heart function. The good news is this can all be prevented through routine dental care for your pet.
At Village Veterinary Clinic, we offer a comprehensive range of veterinary dental services, from tooth cleaning and polishing to extractions, as needed. Dental radiography (x-ray) allows us to detect underlying problems in the teeth or jaw. Finally, our highly skilled staff will be glad to work with you to show you ways that you can help your pet maintain good oral health at home, in between visits. Together we will work to help your pet enjoy a happy, healthy mouth for life!
