Chew on this: the majority of dogs and cats show some signs of dental disease by the tender age of three. And that’s no laughing matter. Tooth decay, gingivitis, and plaque and tartar build-up can lead to heart, liver, and kidney problems.
At Stuart Sound Animal Hospital, we offer professional ultrasonic cleaning, scaling, polishing and fluoride treatments. We also strongly recommend preventative measures like teeth brushing (using special enzymatic toothpaste), oral rinsing, and special tartar-preventing diets.
Our other oral services include:
- Tooth extractions
- Minor oral surgery
Periodic dental exams help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future problems, especially if you have a pet who won’t tolerate brushing. Interested in learning how to brush your pet’s teeth? Call us at (772) 287-0024 and our veterinarians will be happy to help you get started!
