The Dentistry service provides the most progressive care with the latest technology, techniques, and customized treatment plans. Dental disease is the #1 disease affecting adult pets. Based on a study by the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats develop some degree of periodontal disease by the age of three. Our patients receive comprehensive oral exams to identify tooth malformations, gum disease, oral tumors, and other diseases that might contribute to their health. We are here to help your pet have a better life by restoring their oral health.
