Both animals and people need regular
dental care. Surprisingly, though, while the need is the same, the problems are a
little different. While humans tend to get cavities, our small animal
patients are relatively immune to this process. Instead small animals
are more prone to tartar (calculus) and plaque build up, which leads to
gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Periodontal disease in
animals causes pain, foul breath, eventual loss of teeth, and according
to some schools of thought, could cause bacterial infections in internal
organs, such as the heart and kidneys.
Whether your pet is young or old, whether you have a dog, cat, or ferret,
your pet's dental care is of vital importance and we are here to help.
