Essential Pet Dental Care

Dental issues can affect your pet’s overall well-being, leading to heart, liver, and kidney health issues, affecting the entire body through the bloodstream. Studies have shown that 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population. 

Routine dental cleanings are essential for preventing plaque and tartar buildup, which can contribute to dental problems. Our veterinary professionals at Avenue of the Saints Animal Hospital perform professional dental cleanings to ensure your pet’s teeth and gums remain in optimal condition. When necessary, we provide targeted dental treatments to address specific issues. Our veterinary team is skilled in performing dental extractions when required, always prioritizing your pet’s comfort and well-being.

If you observe signs of dental issues in your pet, such as bad breath, difficulty eating, or inflamed gums, consider our pet dentistry services at Avenue of the Saints Animal Hospital.

Digital Dental Radiology (Waverly Office)

We are proud to be able to offer our clients digital dental radiology here at Avenue of the Saints Animal Hospital in our Waverly Office.

Our commitment is to provide top-notch veterinary services to our patients. Our entire staff is devoted to staying informed and up-to-date with the latest advancements in the veterinary field to ensure the highest quality of care for your pets.

To demonstrate our dedication to your pets’ well-being, we utilize digital dental radiographs. These advanced imaging techniques enable us to peer inside your pet’s teeth, identifying oral cavities. With this detailed information, our veterinarians can assess the health of each tooth, determining if any extractions are necessary. Additionally, we can offer guidance to owners on the level of dental care required for their pets.

Digital dental radiology is very quick. We can view the images mere seconds after taking them. They are also safe and effective, making them an invaluable diagnostic tool! Don’t hesitate to contact us today at Avenue of the Saints Animal Hospital if you have any questions about digital dental radiology.
