It’s easy to assume that your pet’s teeth are all but indestructible, considering how ingeniously and fearlessly he uses them for various tasks. But your pet’s mouth isn’t all that different from own in many respects—including the potential for tooth loss and breakage, gum inflammation and infection, as well as more serious health complications. In fact, by age three, most dogs and cats show some symptoms of periodontal (dental) disease.
A long, happy, healthy life for your pet includes veterinary dental care. Here at Goshen Animal Clinic, we can serve as your pet’s all-in-one source for dental and oral care. Our services include:
- Dental X-rays
- Cleanings (done under anesthesia per American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines)
- Oral surgery
We also believe in at-home dental care for pets, and our veterinarians can coach you on how to brush your pet’s teeth. If your pet is less than cooperative about brushing, our doctors can also recommend chews, wipes, foods and other products that reduce plaque and tartar build-up between cleanings.
To schedule a dental exam or cleaning for your pet, just give us a call at 502-228-1827.
