Do you know the number one disease affecting cats and dogs today? If you guessed dental disease, you are right! According to the American Veterinary Dental College, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease by the age of three, and it often goes untreated.
As periodontal disease progresses, bacteria can enter your dog or cat’s bloodstream and cause severe heart, liver, and kidney problems.
At West Main Animal Hospital, we know that dental disease is a preventable issue. We strive to provide you with the at-home tools and in-clinic treatment to maintain good oral health and prevent dental disease.
In addition to regular dental exams, we offer:
- Anesthetic cleaning and polishing
- Digital dental X-rays to see below the gumline where most dental disease is present
- Extractions when necessary
- Oral surgery
