Most pets require periodontal treatments every 6-12 months. In order to reduce the number of treatments done at the hospital, preventive home care is important.

Ideally regular, even daily brushing of your pet’s teeth is the best approach. However, we recognize not every pet parent will do this nor will ever pet allow their teeth to be brushed! An alternative to regular brushing is using Oravet dental treats which we have available at our hospital. The treats contain a bonding gel that repels bacteria in between your pet’s preventive periodontal treatment. Giving your pet one treat each day can reduce the infection which leads to periodontal disease.

Please feel free to ask us how we can best address your pet’s dental needs.
