Why worry about my pet’s teeth?
The goals of dental care are to eliminate current pain, prevent future loss of teeth, reduce discomfort from new infections, and decrease secondary risks of heart, liver and kidney infections due to severe dental disease.
Pets often survived in the past not because of what we did, but despite what we did or did not do for them. Our pets now live much closer to us than they used to. They are in our homes and often next to us on the couch. We are more aware of their health than ever before. We have learned how to not only keep them with us longer but how to make that time with us more comfortable and healthy. Dental care is one of the biggest advances in better lives for our pets.
The costs of pet dental care are associated with the time these procedures involve, the use of anesthesia, and advanced equipment and training.
