Dental Care

Good dental hygiene can increase vitality, wellbeing and add additional years to your pet's life. Regular dental check-ups and teeth cleanings help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.

If left untreated, dental disease can not only be painful and inhibit proper nutrition, but it can also lead to serious systemic issues that may threaten your pet's health before symptoms are noticeable. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop tooth and gum disease by the age of three years.
