Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. Our doctors examine your pet’s teeth and gums semi-annually, as part of their complete physical examination, to determine if a dental cleaning or extraction procedure needs to be performed. Typically, a dental cleaning does not need to be performed before age two in most pets.
