Our Pet Dental Care

Pet dental care is an important aspect of a pet’s health and wellness regimen. Pets are experts at hiding pain, which is why so many pet owners might forget or ignore dental issues. Your pet’s oral hygiene doesn’t only affect his teeth. It may also affect his overall mood, activity, appetite, vital organs, and body systems.

Early prevention and detection of pet dental disease can help eliminate eating disorders, chronic pain, and worsening health problems.

Symptoms and Treatments for Your Pet’s Dental Hygiene

A Summit Dog & Cat Hospital veterinarian offers teeth cleaning and dental hygiene services as part of regular pet wellness. Be sure to note any symptoms of dental disease in your pet and let a veterinarian on our veterinary team know.
