Does your furry friend have stinky breath? Dental disease is most likely the culprit. Is your pet a picky eater? This is often a symptom of mouth or tooth pain. Dental health is a significant factor in your pet's overall wellness. There has been significant advancement in pet dentistry that allows Veterinarians and staff to keep pet's teeth clean and healthy. We perform digital radiographs with every dental cleaning. We often find teeth that appear normal on the surface, but the x-rays show fractured roots, infections or other problems. This gives a more detailed look at the health of the tooth beneath the gumline.
