Dental health affects overall health for your pets

Halitosis, or bad breath, is the most common sign of dental disease. Classic “doggy breath” is not necessarily normal. It’s usually caused by an infection of the gums and potentially the other canine dental healthsupporting structures of the teeth. Plaque builds up every day on the tooth surface including at the gum line. Left in place, the plaque can mineralize, or harden, in less than 2 days. The brown, grey, or yellow staining commonly seen near the gum line is a sign of advancing disease. Signs of dental disease include:

  • bad bath
  • red inflamed gums
  • loose teeth
  • tartar accumulation
  • calculus on the teeth.

Dental disease is the most common ailment affecting pet dogs and cats and affects more than just their dental health.

The amount and severity of dental disease in our pets can be very surprising. The  best way to reduce the risk of dental disease in pets is proper dental care. A simple and quick tooth brushing just 3 times a week can add years to your dog’s life, but the sad fact is that most dogs never even see a toothbrush.  We have made it even easier and more affordable for our clients to take great care of their favorite furry friends.  Not only do we offer a FREE dental examination…just call us at (614) 888-4050 and we’ll be happy to schedule that appointment… but we also offer a cost effective option for dental cleanings for your pet.

BUDGET Friendly Dental Cleanings

Our clients know how important dental health is for their pets and we want to make that more affordable as well.  For cats and dogs up to 6 years of age, dental cleanings start at $125!

(Prices for all procedures may be adjusted based upon the weight of your pet as the amount of anesthesia utilized will vary based upon weight).
