Dental disease is the most commonly diagnosed health problem in dogs. Dental health is very important to your dog’s overall well-being. If your dog has problems chewing or doesn’t want to eat, has bad breath, swollen gums, redness of the gums, and or broken teeth, your dog may be in need of dental health care. We provide a wide range of dental care services to help your dog live a long and healthy life.
What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?
We offer a number of services ranging from a basic dental cleaning and scaling to difficult tooth extractions. Our dental x-ray provides us with images of your dog’s teeth and shows us which ones are healthy and which ones are not.
How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?
Brushing your dog’s teeth 3-4 times a week would be ideal, however, most people are not able to do this. We would recommend a supplementary cleaning tool, such as dental treats to help between brushings.
Why is oral and dental health important?
Oral health care is very important to the overall health of your dog. Bad oral health can lead to many other health problems which include, heart, liver and kidney disease as well as numerous infections.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 4, 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".
3. OPERATING HOURS
We are OPEN with the following hours:
Monday to Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED
