Pet Dental Care

Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Dental disease leads to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.

Despite these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet’s health. There are many different ways to improve your pet’s dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.

The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.

If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (570) 275-0202 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s dental cleaning.
