Bad breath isn’t just an annoyance; it’s a sign of periodontal disease, which, while very common, can be a detriment to your pet’s health. Periodontal disease is a chronic and painful infection of the mouth, affecting more than 85 percent of dogs and cats over four years of age, and if left untreated, it is progressive. Good dental hygiene in your pet can prevent this disease, as well as a number of serious secondary problems, such as heart, kidney and liver diseases, that can develop from infected gums.
The Vet Set provides the most comprehensive animal dental care available in a private practice. We have digital x-ray technology and state-of-the-art dental prophylaxis equipment, and we use only the best dental health materials. We provide a local, long-acting nerve block to every dog and cat experiencing extractions. This allows us to use very light levels of anesthesia, and it ensures that the patient doesn't feel pain when recovering from their dental procedure.
