Dental Care

Did you know that more than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some form of periodontal disease by the age of two? (Source: American Veterinary Medical Association) These are eye-opening figures, especially when you consider that dental disease can lead to bacteria entering your pet’s bloodstream, which may result in serious damage to the heart, liver and kidneys. We offer:

  • Dental Cleaning and Polishing, which is more complex than human dental cleanings, and require general anesthesia
  • Pre-Dental Workups, including in-hospital blood work
  • Minor Oral Surgery, including periodontal care, oral surgery and tooth extractions

Does your pet suffer from any of these symptoms?

  • Bad breath
  • Yellowish plaque on your pet’s teeth near the gum line
  • Red and swollen gums
  • Pain or bleeding when your pet eats
  • Missing or loose teeth

If you’ve seen any of these symptoms, it may be a sign your pet needs dental care immediately. Contact Grass Valley Veterinary Hospital to make an appointment.
