Clint Moore Animal Hospital Dental Care
The health of your pet’s teeth depends on routine at-home care, professional exams, and
cleaning. Without regular care, periodontal (gum) diseases, such as gingivitis, and periodontitis, can affect the gums, and bone supporting your pet’s teeth. In its advanced stages, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss, and may even lead to heart, liver or kidney disease. Clint Moore Animal Hospital is fully equipped with the most modern Dental equipment.
Remember, a healthy cat or dog has healthy
teeth and gums! Be sure to ask your veterinarian about how you can care for your pet’s dental needs.
