Untreated dental disease can be very painful for pets and can potentially lead to complications with internal organs, such as the heart and kidneys. We do full oral health exams, preventative dental care and treatments to keep pets’ mouths healthy.

They can help identify issues early and correct medical problems before they become complicated and expensive to treat. At annual health checks, the vet will also be able to discuss and provide any vaccinations that are needed.
