To be sure you are doing all you can to protect your pet's health and keep him or her feeling great, please make regular dental examinations and cleanings a part of your pet's preventive care plan.

Dental Care at Home

You should check your pet's teeth regularly at home for any signs of problems. Performing this check often is vital, but brushing your pet's teeth is the single most important act you can do to maintain your companion's good oral health. If performed regularly, brushing your pet's teeth dramatically decreases the incidence of gingivitis and can increase the interval between teeth cleaning appointments.

If you are unsure of how to brush your pet's teeth, please ask a member of the staff at River Oaks Animal Hospital for instructions. We are happy to help.
