At Central Animal Hospital, we care about your pet’s dental health! Our pet dentist provides advanced dental services.
Dental disease is one of the most common health problems in pets. Most pets have some degree of dental health problems by age 3. Bad breath is one of the most frequently noted signs of dental disease and usually correlates with periodontal disease. In the absence of a good home dental care program (and even with one in place), it is common for pets to need some degree of dental care at some point in their lives.
Home dental care can begin when your pet is quite young. From dental treats to tooth brushing, our pet dentist can review ways to implement home dental care with your puppy or kitten. There are a variety of dental care products available, however, Central Animal Hospital recommends those specifically given the VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) seal of approval.
During a regular health check, our pet dentist can review the dog or cat’s oral health and current home care plan, and if needed, recommend professional dental cleaning (prophylaxis). A thorough dental cleaning for your pet is a bit different than dental cleaning for people.
