Healthy teeth and gums play an important role in the well-being of our animal companions. Infection in the mouth has the same effects as infection elsewhere in the body: inflammation, pain and stress on the immune system. In addition, bacteria from periodontal disease enters the bloodstream and has proven associations with liver disease, kidney disease and heart valve disease.
Fortunately, dental disease can be prevented through routine cleanings performed by our highly skilled doctors and veterinary technicians. At Blue Cross Animal Hospital, we offer comprehensive dental services for pets including oral surgery, and we can show you ways to keep their teeth and mouth healthy for a lifetime!
