Clean teeth and healthy gums are an important part of our overall health as humans. That's why we brush every day and visit the dentist at least once a year. Your dog or cat also needs good dental care to enjoy a long, healthy life. If not properly cared for, plaque and tartar can build up on your pet's teeth, eventually leading to a host of other oral health problems. Dental disease is one of the most commonly diagnosed medical conditions in adult companion animals and it can cause serious problems throughout your pet's entire body, including disease of the liver, heart and kidneys. The good news is this can all be prevented through routine dental care, both professionally and at home.
Stockbridge Animal Hospital has all the professional pet dentistry services necessary to help your pet achieve a healthy smile for life! Our highly skilled staff is well-versed in all aspects of animal dentistry and is prepared to offer both preventative dental care as well as the treatment and care of existing oral problems. We use modern equipment and cutting edge technology to perform thorough exams and professionally clean and polish your pet's teeth to a healthy shine, removing plaque and tartar both above and below the gumline.
Should your pet already be experiencing a problem with his or her teeth or gums, we can assist with that as well. We are equipped to perform a variety of advanced dental care techniques, such as tooth extractions, to help manage and correct the problem and get your pet back on the path to a healthy mouth again. Even if you've never given your four-legged family member's dental care another thought, it's never too late to start, and we're here to help!
In addition to our role as your pet's dentist, the role you play as your companion's biggest health advocate is equally important. Just bringing your pet in once a year to have their teeth cleaned isn't enough to truly keep plaque, tartar and bacteria at bay. It's up to you to take over where we leave off and commit to caring for your pet's teeth daily. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff is happy to work with you to provide advice, guidance and even demonstrations of home dental care techniques that you can employ to keep your pet's mouth healthy in between vet visits.
You want what's best for your pet, and to see them live a long, happy and healthy life. Dental care plays an important role in achieving that goal. Let's work together to help your companion enjoy a lifetime of good oral health!
