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.

Why is oral and dental health important?


Flip a lip and take a look inside. If you see redness of the gums, tartar on the teeth and smell a foul odour, your pet needs your help.

Our veterinarians are currently seeing all patients by appointment ONLY. We are currently operating with both curbside and in office appointments. We have limited capacity to accommodate indoor appointments but please let us know your preference at the time of booking and we will do our very best to accommodate your request. Please note, for safety reasons, you will be asked to wait behind a clear screen while speaking with the veterinarian. Your pet will be examined by the veterinarian while one of our assistants holds them. We appreciate your patience and understanding as these appointments take a little longer than normal.  

How do curbside / closed-door appointments work?
Please come to the back door for your appointment and call 416-537-3128 upon arrival.

After examining your pet, the doctor will follow-up on the phone with their findings and recommendations. Thank you for entrusting us with the care of your pets. Please let us know in advance if they have any special needs.
