Pet Dentistry

According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop gum disease by the age of three. Periodontal disease can have a serious impact on your pet’s well-being and general health.

American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) guidelines recommend a true dental prophylaxis (complete dental cleaning, Polishing and intraoral radiographs in the absence of obvious lesions) by 1 year of age for cats and small-to medium-breed dogs, and by 2 years of age for larger-breed dogs. They have summarized that not only is oral health a fundamental aspect of overall pet health and wellbeing, but veterinary dentistry is now considered a standard component of companion animal medicine.
