Most pet owners overlook oral care as an important area of pet health. Good oral care can often prevent serious health issues for your pet as they age.
Do not assume bad breath, loose or discolored teeth, or bleeding gums are normal. These can be warning signs of periodontal disease that can lead to further complications with the heart, liver or kidneys.
Mechanicsburg Veterinary Clinic offers complete dental services, including:
- Dental Exams – your pet’s mouth will be thoroughly inspected by the veterinarian during your pet’s annual wellness exam. Our doctors will also guide you through the day to day cleaning and maintaining of your pet’s mouth.
- Dental Clean & Polish – performed under general anesthesia, your pet’s teeth will be cleaned and polished, removing any discoloration, tartar or plaque build up.
