For their bodies to be healthy, dogs and cats must also have healthy mouths.
Dogs and cats are at risk for tooth decay, tooth loss, and disorders of the heart, liver, and kidneys when their oral hygiene is left to chance. Fortunately, by following the right at-home cat/dog tooth cleaning regimen, regular dental exams, and recommended professional cleaning schedule, these issues can be avoided. Our veterinarians will make recommendations based on your pet’s individual needs.
At-Home Dental Care
At Metrowest Veterinary Associates, we’re dedicated to assisting pet parents in increasing their involvement in everyday pet dental care.
To slow the plaque accumulation and lessen the amount (and frequency) of teeth cleanings in our clinic, we strongly advise our clients to brush their pet’s teeth twice daily.
In addition to brushing, you can also use:
- A special dental diet for tartar control
- Dental chews (for dogs only)
- Dental treats
- Water additives
- Oral care wipes
Below are all of the veterinary services we offer at Metrowest Veterinary Associates. If you have any questions regarding our services, please feel free to call us.
