Why is dental care so important for my pet?
Tartar and plaque can build up on the surfaces of your pet’s teeth, causing bacteria to leak into the blood stream and affect the organs that filter the blood. We examine your pet’s mouth when they come into our office for a visit, checking to ensure that the oral cavity is clean and healthy. Check out our pet dentistry page for more information on oral health!
