- Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats.
- 80 percent of all dogs and cats have dental disease by the age of two.
- Advanced dental disease can be a contributing factor or cause for many other diseases such as heart, liver, kidney, prostate and inner ear-vestibular disease.
- Dental disease left unchecked can lead to tooth root infections.
- Dental disease is painful and affects your pet’s quality of life.
- Dental disease is both treatable and preventable!
While serious dental conditions require ultrasonic scaling under general anesthesia, low grade tarter and mild gingivitis may only need a gentle cleaning. Performed by our skilled veterinary dental hygienist using a low impact technique and mild sedation, our routine dental prophylaxis reveals a clean and healthy mouth, keeping harmful dental disease at bay. Best of all, this is a short outpatient procedure.
Walden Lake Animal clinic also is proud to offer the latest in routine dental care for your horses. With the use of sedation and power tools, your horse’s routine dental needs can be accomplished with less stress and excitement.
Your horse’s dental care/needs should be evaluated at least once on an annual basis.
Ask a nurse if our dental hygiene service can help your pet/horse maintain a healthy smile.
