Dental disease is by far the most common ailment to affect adult cats and dogs. Dental disease is always painful and frequently leads to other, much more serious health problems. Common signs of oral disease include tartar buildup, red and swollen gums, bad breath and changes in eating or chewing habits. The good news is dental disease is preventable through a combination of veterinary dental care and home dental care.
At Headon Forest Animal Hospital, we offer a wide range of comprehensive dental procedures to help keep your pet’s mouth clean and healthy. We employ the most modern equipment available and use dental x-rays to determine if your pet has disease beneath the gumline. Our veterinarians have had extra training by a Board Certified Veterinary Dentist, so we’re well equipped to handle all of your pet’s oral healthcare needs.
In addition to the dental services provided in our clinic, our knowledgeable staff will also work with you to provide advice and guidance on ways that you can help keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy at home, in between vet visits. Together we will work hard to ensure that your pet enjoys a lifetime of good oral health.
