Dental Care Services for Pets

Taking care of your pet’s teeth shouldn’t be left out of their other health routines. Just like you need to schedule yearly dentist visits, make sure your furry family isn’t being forgotten! Dental visits don’t only help us to ensure your pet’s teeth look great, but also feel that way too. Their oral health is an important indicator of their overall health so we want to make sure it’s being taken care of.

What is periodontal disease?

Periodontal or gum disease can be painful for your pet. When bacteria mixes with plaque and tartar and gets stuck beneath the gum line, your furry friend could be dealing with an infection or inflammation you might not be able to see. With the help of an X-ray, we might be able to get a better picture of what’s happening with your pet’s oral health and detect issues that are undetectable to the naked eye.

How do you clean my pet’s teeth?

We clean your pet’s teeth while they’re under anesthesia. We remove any tartar buildup on the surface of their teeth and remove any other residue below the gum line. It’s important to be vigilant of any signs your pet has diseased teeth or might be experiencing pain caused by gum disease. If you notice any of the below, please contact our veterinary team for an appointment at 905.682.7857. Signs to look out for are:

  • Tiredness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Bad breath
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Irritability

    Does my pet need to be under anesthesia during their dental procedure?

    Putting your pet under anesthesia ensures the procedure is safely performed. This limits any discomfort your pet might experience during the procedure and allows our veterinary team to do a thorough cleaning and examination of their mouth.
