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.
