Dental Care for Dogs
Dental care is a very important aspect of your dog’s overall health. It is one of the most common issues that we see affecting dogs of all ages. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings when needed will help to ensure your dog has a healthy and pain-free mouth. We offer a variety of services and products for the prevention and treatment of dental disease.
What types of canine dental care services are offered at your clinic?
We offer dental cleanings, dental x-rays and oral surgery. When performing a dental cleaning, it is very important to clean the plaque and tartar below the gum line. If this tartar is not cleaned, that can lead to the root of the tooth becoming diseased and may lead to it having to be extracted.
How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?
Brushing your dog’s teeth daily is ideal, but even doing it a few times a week can help make a difference. Make sure to never use human toothpaste, as it is harmful to dogs to ingest the fluoride. We carry pet specific toothpaste in a variety of flavours and toothbrushes in different sizes for small and large dogs.
Why is oral and dental health important?
We believe dental health is very important and recommend having your dogs teeth checked by a veterinarian at least once a year. Untreated tooth and gum disease may allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream and cause damage to the valves of the heart. Having dental cleanings when needed will help your dog have a healthy and happy mouth.
