Dental disease is one of the most frequently diagnosed problems in dogs. Prevention is much better than treatment when it comes to dental hygiene! Most people disregard the importance of dental health in their dogs. Regular tooth brushing is the best way to maintain healthy teeth and avoid the need for veterinary dental cleaning.
What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?
We are always happy to demonstrate how to properly brush your dog’s teeth! We can also perform a complete dental cleaning under a general anesthetic if your dog requires it. The complete dental cleaning is done with an ultrasonic scaler and then the teeth are polished with a dental polisher.
How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?
Ideally, you should brush your dog’s teeth once daily. It can be done relatively quickly and that will prevent the buildup of nasty dental calculus which is responsible for bad breath, tooth decay, gum inflammation and tooth loss.
Why is oral and dental health important?
Dental care plays a much more important role in a dog’s overall health than most people realize. Poor oral health can have a serious effect on a dog’s respiratory tract, cardiovascular system, and kidneys. Dental care is important for oral health as well. Healthy teeth can prevent gum infections, dental disease, and bad breath. The bad breath associated with poor oral health can be quite overpowering and that will affect your home environment as well!
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".

We are OPEN with the following hours: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday: 8 am - 6 pm Wednesday: 8 am - 7 pm Friday: 8 am - 4 pm Saturday & Sunday: Closed
