Our dedicated team offers a range of pet dentistry services aimed at maintaining your pet’s oral health. From routine dental cleanings to advanced dental procedures, we tailor our services to meet the unique needs of each patient.

When to Tell if a Pet Needs Dental Care

Pets, like humans, can experience dental issues that may require professional attention. Knowing when your pet needs dental care is crucial. Look out for the following symptoms:

  1. Bad Breath: Persistent bad breath can be an indicator of dental problems. It may suggest the presence of plaque, tartar, or an underlying dental issue.
  2. Changes in Eating Habits: Difficulty chewing, reluctance to eat, or a sudden change in eating habits may signal dental discomfort.
  3. Visible Tartar or Discoloration: If you notice yellow or brown deposits on your pet’s teeth, it indicates the presence of tartar, which can lead to more serious dental issues if left untreated.
