Veterinary Dental Care

Proper oral healthcare is as important to your pet’s health as it is to your own health. Periodontal disease is the most common clinical condition occurring in adult dogs and cats, and is entirely preventable.

By three years of age, most dogs and cats have some evidence of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease includes gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and periodontitis (loss of bone and soft tissue around the teeth).

Professional dental cleaning is essential for treating periodontal disease. Every dental cleaning at Cumberland Animal Clinic starts with a review of the patient’s health and dental history.

Following the dental cleaning, the pet owner will be provided with recommendations for daily home oral hygiene specific for dogs or cats, and a recommendation made for a follow-up examination. Home oral hygiene can make a tremendous difference in your pet’s comfort and health.

That is why we put so much importance on oral care at CAC. Regular cleanings by our veterinarians and medical staff is the most effective way to ensure good dental health. Request an appointment today for a periodontal disease screening.
