Dental Care for Dogs

Ask yourself, “Would I leave the house without brushing your teeth?”. No! Then why would you let your dog? Bad breath, irritated gums, change in eating habits, and more are all signs of dental disease. Dental disease is the most commonly diagnosed health concern in our pets. At Companion Animal Hospital, we are equipped to offer you a wide range of dental care services.

What types of canine dental care services are offered at your hospital?

We care about your dog’s smile. We offer comprehensive oral exams, dental home care packages with brushing instruction, dental x-rays, extractions, scaling and polishing (dental prophylaxis) and dental diets. The best day to start thinking about your furry friend’s oral health is today!

How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?

Brush the teeth you wish to keep! Daily brushing is your best option. Ask our team for more information about canine toothbrushes and polishes.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Studies show a correlation between oral health and the health of the rest of your pet. Bacteria from the mouth can travel through the bloodstream and affect vital organs like the liver and kidneys.


Black History & Veterinary Medicine - Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb (1923-1992)

Today's medical historian of colour is Dr. Alfreda Johnson Webb. Dr. Webb graduated with her DVM with our previous blog star Dr. Hinton, as one of the first female African American veterinarians in the US. Both of these great women were also the first black members of the Women’s Veterinary Medicine Association. She also founded the School of Veterinary Medicine of North Carolina State University. In 1971, she became the first African American woman in the North Carolina General Assembly, serving on many committees including serving as the Chairperson of Minority Affairs, president of the Democratic Women of NC, and a member of the NC Council on Sickle Cell Syndrome.   So you can see despite so many obstacles Dr. Webb was still able to make history and so can we!   Written by: Ashley G, VT   Resources:
