Regular Dental Care Helps Make Happy, Healthy Pets!
Pets have dental diseases and problems just like people do, and they rely on us for their dental care. Regular dental check-ups at Companion Animal Hospital in Maize—combined with good dental hygiene at home—can increase your pet’s health, vitality, and well-being, and help ensure your pet leads the best life possible.
Regular exams are so important because most dogs and cats begin showing signs of periodontal disease by age 3. This is normal, but if left untreated can lead to more serious health problems. Untreated dental disease may lead to tooth loss, unnecessary pain for your pet, or infection. By scheduling regular dental exams & cleanings, you can extend your pet’s life by 2-3 years!
