Happy Healthy Smiles
Good dental care is about more than just keeping your pet's teeth and mouth clean and healthy. Without proper dental care, your pet could face periodontal disease, gingivitis and the dental problems, which can be very painful. Periodontal disease is the build up of plaque and bacteria on the teeth and gums. This can lead to more serious health problems, including damage to the liver, heart, kidneys and other organs. Regular dental check-ups and cleanings are vital to your pet's overall health!
The Windsor Animal Clinic offers a complete dental cleaning program. During a routine dental cleaning, your pet will be placed under anesthesia. Your pet's teeth will be scaled with an ultrasonic scaler, removing all of the tarter and plaque, and then polished. A veterinarian will then examine your pet's teeth and oral cavity. Dental polish is then applied giving your pet a nice bright smile with white glistening teeth. The veterinarian and staff will then instruct you on how to best care for your pet's teeth at home.
