Pet Dental Health at Kenwood Animal Hospital

Caring for your pet involves more than just love and nutrition; it includes their dental health too. Dental disease, particularly periodontal disease, is the leading health issue in pets, affecting over 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by age three. This can significantly impact their overall health and happiness.

Regular dental check-ups and proper home care at Kenwood Animal Hospital can prevent painful conditions, improve your pet’s vitality, and extend their life. Ignoring dental health can lead to severe systemic problems, beyond just bad breath or tooth loss.

Our Approach to Dental Health

Our dental exams are thorough, targeting the buildup of plaque and tartar that leads to gum disease and tooth decay. We offer comprehensive cleaning, and if issues are found, we discuss treatment options with you. Our team is skilled in dental procedures and surgeries, ensuring your pet gets the best care.

Home care is vital. Regular tooth brushing can dramatically reduce the risk of gingivitis and extend the time between professional cleanings. We’re here to guide you on how to properly care for your pet’s teeth at home.
