SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Periodontal disease is the inflammation of the tissues surrounding a tooth. Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to severe oral pain, loss of teeth, other dental diseases and a wide array of complications throughout the body. Proper dental care can prevent periodontal disease and is an important aspect of keeping your pet healthy.
PET WELLNESS EXAMS
Even when your pet is healthy, Pet Wellness Exams are vital. When treated early, there are issues that can be quickly and cheaply solved, which is why we’re committed to practicing preventative care at our Veterinary Hospital. Contact us to learn more about our services and how you can help make a difference in the lives of pets.

During a dental cleaning plaque and tartar are removed from a pet’s teeth, and the health of the entire mouth (tongue, gums, lips, and teeth) is assessed. A thorough dental cleaning can be accomplished only while the pet is under general anesthesia. Anesthesia keeps your pet free of pain during the dental procedure and allows your veterinarian to fully inspect the teeth and remove tartar from under the gums.

DR. KEN SANDLERIN
DO PETS NEED DENTAL CLEANINGS?
Yes. Pets face all the same dental issues we do, like cavities and gum disease. Dental problems cause pain and can cause serious infections elsewhere in the body. Professional cleanings help keep your dog’s mouth and body healthy.
HOW SAFE IS ANESTHESIA IN MY SENIOR DOG?
Pet parents often worry that their dog is too old for anesthesia. This is a huge misconception that prevents many dogs from getting the surgery they need. As we often say, "age is not a disease."
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HEARTWORM DISEASE
Heartworm disease is transmitted by mosquitoes. It is a serious disease that primarily affects the heart and lungs but can also affect the liver, kidney, eye, and central nervous system, and if untreated, can cause death.
