Armed to the Teeth

We are excited about the new equipment we recently added to enhance our dental and our oral surgical procedures! We have a new state-of-the-art dental radiology machine that allows us to capture high-quality images when x-raying a cat's mouth. This advanced technology enables us to better diagnose dental problems below the gum line by providing high-definition digital images with striking contrast.

Did you know...Kittens have 26 teeth, while adult cats have 30. That equates to a lot of dental care! Periodontal disease affects 70%-90% of cats three years of age and older. Often cats do not show obvious signs of dental disease. Many cats with dental disease eat without a noticeable change in appetite.

February is National Pet Dental Health Month; a good reminder to schedule a dental evaluation for your feline family.
