Dental disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. Over 50% of cats and 85% of dogs over the age of 3 have dental problems that require professional treatment. The consequences of leaving dental disease untreated include:
- oral pain and infection
- loss of teeth
- potential infection to major body organs
- diminished quality of life
Here at Four Paws and Hooves Veterinary Clinic we use the same equipment and anesthesia as human dentists do.
Some of the routine procedures we perform include:
- Surgical extractions
- Treatment of periodontal disease
- Oral cancer surgery
To ensure professional and attentive care and to treat everything from routine cleanings to surgical extractions, Four Paws and Hooves Veterinary Clinic has installed state-of-the-art equipment including heart and blood pressure monitors, a patient warming system and advanced anesthesia equipment.
