Dental Care for Dogs

Dental health is extremely important. As our pets don’t brush their teeth every day as we do, tartar can build up on their teeth and cause inflammation and infection in the gums. Pets with advanced dental disease will start to show a reluctance to eat and even play, and in some cases, the infection can spread into the body.

What types of canine dental care services are offered at your hospital?

We offer prophylactic dental cleanings and dental extractions if teeth are diseased or damaged.

How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?

Ideally, pet owners should aim to brush their dog’s teeth at least once a day and make sure to use a toothpaste that is meant for pets. Human toothpaste contains fluoride, which is harmful to your dog if swallowed. Dog toothbrushes are also available here at the clinic, and our veterinary technicians would be happy to give you a tooth brushing demonstration.
