An often overlooked aspect of animal care by pet owners is dental health. The staff at Animal Clinic of Verona knows that dental issues can lead to more serious illnesses if not treated promptly and adequately by a professional. Tartar buildup and gum disease can promote the growth of harmful bacteria. This can then lead to illness and sometimes even result in sepsis (a form of serious infection that affects all parts of the body). Heart disease, liver disease, and kidney failure can all stem from long term dental infections. Tooth abscesses, as well, can make it very painful for your pet to chew, thereby causing decreased appetite and weight loss. Yearly to bi-yearly dental exams are recommended to ensure your pet’s dental health.
Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, and minor oral surgery. We carry a variety of dental care supplies including brushes, pastes and dental treats, as well as dental prescription diets to help keep your pet’s breath, teeth and gums healthy and smelling sweet!
