Dog Dental Care

Canine Dental Services

Dental care for dogs and cats is one of the most commonly overlooked areas of pet health care. Halitosis is not normal in your dog or cat. Bad breath is a sure sign that your pet has either well-established gingivitis or deeper periodontal disease. Absolutely, the most overlooked chronic infection in our pets is dental disease. This brewing infection is not only capable of causing both acute and chronic pain but, has far-reaching effects on your pet’s major organ function and longevity.

If you see redness of the gums, tartar on the teeth and smell a foul odour, your pet needs your help. One of our veterinarians can perform an evaluation of your pet’s oral cavity and schedule a dental appointment. The safest and most effective dental procedure will include a pre-dental exam with appropriate blood tests, IV fluid therapy and body warming support, vital signs monitored, dental X-rays, and complete cleaning and polishing of your pet’s teeth. The risks of anesthesia are greatly reduced with proper care and the benefits far outweigh the risks for the extreme majority of our pets. As veterinarians, our goal is to work with you to provide the most comfortable and longest life possible for your pet.

How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?


Pets can live longer, healthier lives if oral health care is managed and maintained throughout their lives. Talk to us about developing a customized dental homecare plan for your pet friend. This service is complimentary with any oral/dental examination or procedure.

Your Pet Gazette - Spring Issue

Tick Prevention Recommended Tick prevention remains a priority for our pets this spring: As the temperatures rise above 4 degrees, ticks become active and quest for food.  Toronto Parks, woodland trails, grassy regions, and leaf piles all have the potential to contain ticks just waiting to hitch a ride on pets and humans.  As we are already seeing pets with ticks this spring, our veterinarians feel that it is important to maintain vigilance by using tick protection on our pets.
