Why routine pet dental exams matter

A pet's dental health is just as important as their physical health, however, it often goes overlooked. The reality is that oral hygiene plays a huge part in ensuring your pet lives a long, healthy life.

How can I help my pet maintain good oral hygiene? 

The best way to make sure your pet’s teeth remain healthy is by having routine annual exams. Whether you have a puppy or kitten with a mouth full of baby teeth or an adult pet whose teeth need to be checked for plaque, tartar, or dental disease, having a veterinarian examine them is the first step to making sure they’re in good health.

  • Utilize water additives 
  • Give your pet a dental chew every other day
  • Choose food and treats that control plaque and promote dental health
  • Schedule dental cleanings as recommended by your veterinarian
