Our Service

Our dentistry service diagnoses and treats both simple and complicated dental and oral diseases. While we primarily see dogs and cats, we’re also trained and equipped for larger animals and for exotic pets, such as chinchillas and ferrets.


Dentistry services are available with or without a referral from your primary veterinarian.

In dogs and cats, periodontal disease (gum disease) is the number one diagnosed health problem. By the age of just two years, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of periodontal disease, and gum diseases lead to other problems throughout the body. For this reason, it’s very important for animals to have their teeth examined and cleaned.
