While some people might roll their eyes when it comes to dental care for pets, the fact is that by age four, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. Periodic dental exams and cleanings help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future problems and can spare your pet possible tooth loss and chronic pain. There’s also evidence that good dental health can help your pet live longer.
Ridgeview Animal Hospital offers complete pet oral health services, including:
- State-of-the-art ultrasonic teeth cleaner
- Tooth polishing (discourages plaque and tartar build-up)
- Digital dental X-rays
We also carry finger toothbrushes, regular toothbrushes, toothpaste, and dental chews to help you develop a good dental hygiene routine for your pet.
