Pet Dental Services We Offer

Recognize the Symptoms of Poor Dental Hygiene
Does your pet have poor dental hygiene? If so, you may notice your pet experiencing one or more of these problems:
- Bad Breath - Pet breath may not be spectacular, but it shouldn’t be unpleasantly bad.
- Difficulty Eating - If your pet has sores in his or her mouth, or if your pet’s teeth are loose, your pet may have difficulty eating, which can lead to a variety of other health problems.
- Plaque Buildup - Just like humans, pets may develop a buildup of plaque on their teeth. This buildup may be yellowish or brown in color.
