Pet Dental Care

This highlights a very scary truth about poor dental health and pets – a lack of dental care can significantly impact your pet’s quality of life and could even shorten it.

As dental disease progresses, it can create discomfort, making eating challenging due to mouth pain. Additionally, bacteria from the mouth might enter the bloodstream, leading to complications in the heart, liver, and kidneys. Maintaining your pet’s oral hygiene and overall dental health is crucial to prevent prolonged discomfort and tooth loss. As a general guideline, we strongly advise having your pet’s teeth examined and cleaned annually. This simple step can significantly contribute to their long-term health and happiness.

If it’s been a year since your pet’s last dental exam or cleaning, give us a call at (207) 829-4090 today. We’ll turn your pet’s frown upside down!
