Pet Wellness Depends on Good Oral Care

dental.jpg Your dog or cat relies on a healthy mouth and strong teeth. Aside from the bad breath that comes from unhealthy teeth and gums, disease in this area can shorten your pet’s life through chronic infection and damage to internal organs. Bad teeth and gums can also mean constant pain for your pet.

At Beacon Veterinary Hospital, general well being and good oral hygiene are part of our wellness program for every animal. We offer:

  • Dental prophylaxes (teeth cleaning) for all dogs and cats
  • Dental radiography
  • Extractions
  • Education and training for at-home dental care
  • Nutritional assessment and recommendations for good oral hygiene

The benefit of dental care for your pet is more than just fresh breath—it is one of the cornerstones of a complete wellness program for your animal. Discuss your pet’s dental needs and concerns at your next visit—his or her health and quality of life will benefit from it.
