Treating Dental Diseases in Cats & Dogs
Oral and dental diseases are very common in companion and performance animals, affecting upwards of 80% of all US pets.
Periodontal disease (gum disease) is the most common clinical condition in companion animals. It causes bad breath, oral pain, behavioral changes such as reduced appetite, and may affect distant organs such as the kidneys, liver and heart.
In addition to periodontal disease, many other abnormalities can affect the mouth and teeth, such as broken teeth, orthodontic compromise, and oral tumors.
Our in-house veterinary dentist has extensive experience with treating dental conditions in pets.
