Dental Care

Good dental care is vital for the health of your pet. Every time your pet is brought in to our clinic for an exam, his/her teeth are checked. Oral problems are one of the most prevalent health risks in companion animals.  

Dental disease affects almost 80% of cats and dogs over the age of 3.  Dental disease starts as plaque and bacteria but can lead to tooth decay, gum loss, gingivitis, and tooth loss.  Dental disease also affects your pet’s internal organs as the bacteria from the mouth travels through the bloodstream.  

Dental disease can even harm your relationship with your pet.  

The bad breath often associated with tooth decay and gum disease makes it less pleasant to interact with your dog or cat. VHA recommends regular dental check-ups and teeth cleaning to prevent problems before they appear. Dental cleanings usually involve dropping your animal off in the morning and picking him/her back up that same afternoon. We take dental x-rays, clean the teeth and treat gums for fresh breath and good health. Your pet will be under anesthesia, not in pain and not frightened.  

Compassion

Our culture is built on a heartfelt compassion for our patients and their owners. We are animal people with a passion for helping others and healing pets. We embrace and understand the human-animal bond and empathize with our pet parents’ concerns for their most cherished family members. We care deeply, and we show that with our words and actions. We are here for both of them, owners and pets--that is the VHA Way. It matters not how much we know, unless they first know how much we care.
