Here at Twin Valley we offer Dental Prophylaxis (Dental Cleanings). Keeping up with your pets oral health is very important. Dental disease can affect dogs and cats at, as early as, 3 years of age. That “brown stuff” that you may see on your pets teeth is actually an accumulation of bacteria that will eventually harden into tartar and calculus. Once that accumulation gets bad enough it will cause gingivitis. Gingivitis means the inflammation of the gums. This inflammation leads to more blood flowing to the gums and the blood “picks up” the bacteria growing and then circulates throughout your pet’s internal organs. If this is left long term your pet could have serious internal issues including heart disease.
We offer free dental consults with our Veterinary Technologists so if you think your pet may be suffering from dental disease bring them in!
