Caring for your pet’s teeth and gums is critical to his health. According to the American Animal Hospital Association, more than 85% of dogs over four years of age have periodontal disease. This makes periodontal disease one of the most common diseases seen by veterinarians. Because of the need for oral care in your pets, our doctors have taken the time to learn advanced oral treatment techniques from board certified dentists. Our Licensed Veterinary Medical Technicians (LVMTs) have also completed many hours of continuing education in the areas of oral care, dental cleanings, digital radiology, and ways to prevent periodontal disease.
At Animal Care Veterinary Hospital, we include a thorough oral assessment with every comprehensive dental cleaning. This includes full mouth X-rays with every procedure to allow us to carefully assess your pet’s oral health both above and below the gums and to provide valuable guidance when oral surgery is necessary.
