Maintaining the health of pets requires proper dental care. Similar to people, pets can develop plaque and bacteria on their teeth and gums, which can result in illness, tooth decay, and even tooth loss.
Annual dental checkups are recommended for all cats and dogs. At your pet’s dental visit, Dr. Sherri or her staff will perform a thorough cleaning, polishing, and fluoride treatment. Your pet’s mouth will be examined for anything out of the ordinary. She will advise you as to any further intervention (such as extractions or oral surgery) that may be necessary and can give you tips on how to take care of your pet’s teeth between dental visits.
