Dental Health Is Vital to Overall Pet Health

pet dental care

Your pet’s bad breath is not something the two of you have to suffer through. Instead, it may be an indication that it’s time for a cleaning or your pet may have a dental concern that needs to be addressed.

It’s a common misconception that pets’ teeth are cleaned well enough by eating dry food or chewing on rawhide. Regular dental exams and periodontal treatments including professional cleanings are essential to your pet’s wellness care.

Dental issues are very common with dogs and cats, and they are also largely preventable and treatable. It is worth noting that 80% of dogs and cats 3 years of age and older have dental disease. Many of these issues would have been avoided had proper dental care been followed from day one.

The staff and veterinarians Mountainview are AMAZING! The doctors take the time to get to know your pet before starting to examine them so that they stay as comfortable as possible.We've been taking our two dogs here (20 lbs and 100 lbs) for about two years and are continually impressed with the quality of care they receive. When we brought our older dog in with concerns that she was losing quality of life, they gave her a full checkup and said she was doing good, just needed a little help with some arthritis. A couple medications later, she's back active as a puppy. I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for a vet!
