Did you know that 85% of adult pets have periodontal disease?
Pet dental care for a long, healthy, happy life!
Your pet’s dental health matters to you, your pet, and our medical team. You want fresh smelling breath for those early morning kisses. Your pet wants a healthy mouth that’s pain free. We want to make sure your pet is healthy and you are happy!
Dental disease can cause inflammation and infection which is painful. Untreated dental disease can even cause serious health problems in other areas of the body such as the kidney, liver, and heart – it can even shorten a pet’s life.
Our Standards of Care
The doctors and staff at Bigger Road Veterinary Clinic have undergone advanced training to help keep your pet’s mouth healthy and clean. We recommend routine dental cleanings to help take care of the parts of the mouth you can’t see or care for at home. We offer more advanced dental services should your pet need additional treatment.
All pets receiving dental care at Bigger Road have dental xrays taken during the procedure. This helps us see what’s happening under the gumline. We can identify unhealthy teeth, infection, and bone loss. Early treatment of these conditions will help keep your pet’s mouth healthy longer and can save teeth from needing to be extracted.
