Oral health is as important in animals, as it is for humans! Healthy teeth and gums are crucial for overall health, and when infected can lead to problems in the heart, kidneys, liver, intestinal tract, or joints. With regular dental care, you can prevent serious side effects and “seeding” of bacteria to other parts of the body.
To ensure the best dental health for your pet, dental exams and cleanings may be recommended as often as once annually. In between appointments, begin regular dental care under the guidance of one of our veterinarians. Your pet’s dental health can be optimized with dental treats, diets, and cleaning products available at Meridian Veterinary Clinic.
