The importance of routine dental care and oral health cannot be overstated! Keep in mind that the food that fuels your animal’s entire body must first pass through the oral cavity and if that starting place is diseased, your animal can experience a variety of serious side effects. Dental disease does not just affect your animal’s mouth, but can also be a source of significant pain, and lead to abscesses and systemic infections such as heart disease and kidney disease! Some chronic diseases such as Diabetes or Cushings can also be very hard to control when an animal has significant dental disease. We can teach you how to prevent disease early on, and should your animal require medical intervention, we can provide that as well! To make sure that your animal’s mouth is healthy, an oral exam is recommended every year!
