Dental Care

A clean mouth equals a healthier pet

Studies show that 80 percent of dogs and cats show signs of oral disease by age three! If left untreated, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and damage your pet’s liver, kidneys, lungs and heart.

Sprayberry Animal Hospital offers dental cleanings complete with an exam, dental x-rays, scaling and polishing, any needed tooth extractions, and take-home preventative care product recommendations to keep your pet's dental health in top shape.

We recommend having your pet's teeth cleaned once a year. Some smaller breeds could benefit from a dental cleaning every six months since they are more prone to dental disease and tartar build-up. Our veterinary team will let you know what category your dog or cat falls into for future cleanings.
