These issues can be painful to your pet and can cause them to develop infections and have a hard time eating.
We also offer Anesthesia Free Dentistry once a month by appointment only. Come in today for a free oral assessment to see if your pet is a candidate! This option is only available to the pets with very little build-up on their teeth.
