80-85% of animals presented to veterinary clinics have some form of periodontal disease. If left untreated, this disease process of the mouth can lead to systemic disease, of which the most common type is bacterial valvular endocarditis. We highly stress routine home dental care as a means of preventing or delaying periodontal disease. Twenty five years of experience have shown us that animals with clean oral cavities have an average 3-7 year longer life spanscaler. We also perform extractions when necessary. Many extractions fall under the category of oral surgery, and we are very aggressive with pain management in these cases.

We have a large shaded yard for your pet to exercise in and large runs and kennels for their spacious comfort.
