Happy Tails Pet Hospital offers excellent dental care for dogs and cats

Regular, professional dental care is an important aspect in helping your pet stay healthy and live longer.  Dental disease represents more than just a cosmetic problem or bad breath.  Plaque and tartar that build-up on your pet's teeth can lead to gingivitis.  Untreated gingivitis can progress to a more advanced form of periodontal disease, resulting in significant pain, bone loss, and infection for your pet.   Advanced dental disease can lead to tooth loss and irreversible damage to the heart valves, kidneys and other organs.

Good dental care for your pet does not end after he or she leaves our hospital.  After your pet’s dental procedure or during your pet’s wellness exam, we provide our clients with education and training for at-home dental care, including how to brush your pet’s teeth, nutritional assessment and recommendations for good oral hygiene. Some recommendations would be; water additives that kill the bacteria which cause plaque build up, prescription food that scrapes tartar off the teeth and treats like Greenies.

We have a brochure on dental care for your pet.  Feel free to download and read the brochure at your leisure.

Call us today to schedule your pet’s dental exam!
