Dog dental examGood oral health is imperative to the overall health of your pet. Pets can develop periodontal disease (inflammation and infection of the gums) as early as one year of age. Often pets do not exhibit symptoms of periodontal disease until it has progressed to an advanced level.

We encourage all pet owners to have their pets receive routine oral health exams. Calculus can build up on teeth and around the gums causing infection and decay in the mouth, and lead to stress on other organs. Oral infections can result in chronic exposure of the heart, kidneys, and liver to bacteria and other toxins via the blood stream. The mouth is also a common site for tumors and cysts. Regular oral exams, and if necessary, digital oral radiographs, will help detect emerging problems leading to earlier and more effective therapies.

Please call the office to schedule an appointment if your pet hasn’t had an oral exam within the past 6 months.
