Pet Dental Care at Foster Animal Hospital Keeps Your Pet’s Mouth Healthy & Pain Free

Australian Shepherd puppy

Tooth and Gum Care is Vital to Overall Health

People are sometimes surprised when we ask about brushing their pet’s teeth, when, in fact, dental disease is extremely common in dogs and cats. By age 3, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease. Protecting your dog or cat’s oral health is important, since periodontal disease can lead to more serious problems (heart, lung, and kidney diseases, jaw fractures). It also causes the bad breath that many pet owners find offensive.

Teeth That Look Good and Feel Great

We can all relate to the pain of a toothache and would not wish that on our pets. At wellness exams, we’ll inspect your pet’s teeth and gums. We’ll provide instruction on home dental care. If warranted, deeper cleaning under anesthesia or even tooth extractions may be advised. We have the latest equipment to perform dental procedures, including digital dental x-rays.
