Dogs don’t Suffer Cavities

The good news for dogs is they don’t get cavities. Wouldn’t it be great if their owners were so lucky? The bad news for dogs is they get just about every other dental problem that humans can. For example, dogs develop plaque and tartar just like we do.

Knowing this should give you incentive to provide you dog with quality dog dental care.

Dental

Plaque and Tartar Buildup

Plaque is a very thin film that is usually colorless and builds up on the dog’s teeth over time. The microorganisms that form this film are mainly Streptococcus mutans and anaerobes. If the plaque isn’t removed from the surface of the dog’s teeth, it mineralizes into tartar. Tartar is caused by the continual accumulation of minerals from saliva on the plaque. It has a rough surface that provides an ideal host for more plaque formation. Eventually, tartar will destroy the dog’s gum line. Once the gum line has been destroyed, the dog can lose teeth, ensuring the need for dog dental care.
Our most common procedure is simply cleaning and polishing teeth. Unfortunately, we have to remove some teeth that are badly infected and repair some that are damaged. We can also perform root canals to preserve the important teeth.

What is OraVet?

This breakthrough approach to oral healthcare begins in the clinic when your veterinarian applies the OraVet Barrier Sealant after your pet’s dental cleaning. It continues at home when you apply the OraVet Plaque Prevention Gel weekly to your pet’s teeth and gum line.

This system helps reduce plaque and calculus formation on your pet’s teeth between dental cleanings.

Amazing Boarding facilities! Immaculately clean and odor free! They provided us with a tour prior to our first boarding so we could make an informed decision about who to trust with the care of our little guy. Everyone has had that one experience where they can't enjoy their vacation because they are worried if their pet is being taken care of properly! We now can actually enjoy our time away knowing that our little pup is very well taken care of! And they have a text line you can use for updates! They make you feel like your pet is just as important to them as they are. to you. Give them a try....you won't be sorry! If Barkley could talk, he would say... I'm a happy camper! Thank you mom and dad for bringing me here!

We had to put our dog of 14 years down. The doctor and staff here were so incredibly compassionate. The doctor took the time to explain everything that would happen. The treatment we received here was amazing and I would recommend to anyone.
