Mobile Pet Dental Care

Your pet’s total wellness and preventative care routine should include regular oral hygiene and pet dentistry. Left unattended, your pet’s teeth and gums can develop periodontal disease, infections, cavities, abscesses and other problems which can be both painful and harmful to your pet’s overall health. For example, periodontal disease (an overgrowth of bacteria in pockets between the teeth and gums) can infect your pet’s bloodstream, harming vital organs, and can even lead to death.

In order to stay healthy and avoid discomfort, pets should be kept on a regular oral hygiene routine and should have regularly scheduled professional cleanings.

What to Look For: Signs of Periodontal Disease and Oral Health Problems in Pets

  • Unusually bad breath (halitosis)
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Difficulty picking up food
  • Frequently dropping toys or food
  • Appetite loss
  • Swelling in the face or mouth
  • Pawing at the face or mouth
  • Loose, broken or missing teeth
  • Red or bleeding gums
  • Head shyness (avoiding being touched)

What to Expect During Your Pet's Appointment

We do not provide dentistry at the house call. We will perform the initial dental examination and then refer you to one of several area brick and mortar hospitals with which we work closely.

Dog and cat dental appointments are similar to a person’s, including an examination, professional cleaning and polishing. Call us today to learn more about our dental exams and what we can do for your pet!
