Pet Dental Care
“Healthy Teeth, Healthy Pet”
Did you know that you can add two to four years to your pet’s life with good dental care?
Just as with humans good dental hygiene is an important component of your pet’s health care. Pets do not tell us when they are in pain and will continue to eat with a painful mouth. If left untreated, dental disease can lead to whole body inflammation - potentially damaging the kidneys, heart, and liver and can aggravate inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and allergies.
Studies have shown that over 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have periodontal disease by three years of age when not on regular dental preventive care.
Pets need regular professional check ups and cleanings and consistent home care.
McKenzie Animal Hospital, PC has a full service dental department equipped with digital dental radiographs, and state-of-the-art instruments. Our veterinarians and certified veterinary technicians have extensive training and experience in pet dentistry and receive ongoing continuing education to stay at the forefront of pet dental care.
