A Healthy Mouth for a Healthy Pet
You might not realize it, but dental care is a critical part of a well-rounded health plan for your pet. Our hospital recommends teeth cleanings at least once per year.
As part of our customized approach to dental care, we’ll conduct regular checkups and teeth cleaning for your pet, which can prevent infections, plaque buildup, lost teeth, and other health issues that being in the mouth. Since signs of dental disease can start as early as age 2, we recommend a preventive dental approach.
Show your pet you care through dental care.
Dental Disease Signs and Symptoms
The best cure for dental disease is to prevent it altogether. If you see any of the following signs, your pet might have dental disease:
- Constant bad breath
- Swollen and/or bright red gums
- Residue along the gum line that’s yellow or brown
- Excessive drooling
- Regular dropping of food during meal-time
- Less eating in general
- Lowered activity levels
- More irritable than usual
- Pawing at their face and mouth
Love these guys! We rescued a sweet little 3-legged kitty (Captain Jack) from the shelter and took him for his first doctor visit here today, and the staff was just amazing. Everyone was so friendly and treated Captain Jack like royalty. Lancers Square is now our forever vet!

Dental Care At Home
Your pet only has one set of adult teeth, so try to keep them pristine! Many pet owners don’t realize that they can brush their pet’s teeth at home to prevent plaque and maintain cleanliness between cleanings.
If you have a puppy or kitten, we recommend starting early. It doesn’t take much to start a healthy habit!
