Pet Dental Care

Dental CarePeriodontal disease starts out on your pets teeth as a thin film of bacteria.  These bacteria, or plague, attach themselves to your animal’s teeth and ultimately die off.  When this happens, the natural saliva in your animal’s mouth calcifies these dead bacteria into a hard and rough substance called tarter. The plaque and tarter can accumulate under the gum line and cause infection and loss of teeth.   Removing this buid-up and properly maintaining your pets oral health is at the heart of our dental care protocols here.
