Our veterinarian and staff understand pets have dental issues, too, and strive to make your pet's check-up as stress-free as possible.
Pet Dental Care
At our animal hospital, providing quality pet care is a priority, and that includes helping keep your pet's teeth and gums free of decay and disease. Our dental services include a free pre-dental exam to get your pet on the right road to dental care.
When having your pet's dental health checked, our veterinarian will discuss with you their diagnosis and what steps to take to relieve your pet of the distress of an infected tooth, if necessary, and set up a treatment plan.
Our vet recommends pets receive teeth cleaning at least once a year. We offer cleaning specials twice a year.
Pet owners who have senior pets will need to schedule an appointment for a complete blood panel work-up prior to dental work.
