Dental Care for Dogs

At Riverview Animal Hospital, we take your pets dental health very seriously. Did you know that by the age of two 8 out 10 dogs have periodontal disease? That is because as pet owners, we often forget to look in our pet’s mouth, and when we do what we see is often just the tip of the iceberg. Our team is trained to ensure your pet’s dental health examined at each yearly visit. That way we can help prevent the problems before they start.

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?

We offer a wide range of dental care for your dog. Including digital dental x-rays, full dental cleanings, as well as oral surgery.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?

Just like humans, animals should have their teeth brushed every day. This ensures that plaque will not turn to tartar, which can be a major cause of periodontal disease.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Oral health is important because the mouth is the window to the rest of the body. There is a lot of bacteria in your dog’s mouth, which could eventually lead to tartar build up. This creates a pocket between their gums and their tooth, which provides bacteria with a direct route to the bloodstream. Bacteria build up in the bloodstream can eventually lead to heart disease.
