Making Lives Better with Pet Dental Care
We take every aspect of your pet’s health seriously, especially their dental health. By three years old, most dogs and cats are developing or already have dental disease to a degree. Dental disease is an oral infection that damages the teeth and gums and decreases your pet’s quality of life. Luckily, dental disease is manageable with proper dental care provided both at home and at our animal hospital in South Florida.
Signs of Poor Oral Health in Your Pet
There are several warning signs that can point to an oral health problem, including:
- Bad breath
- Yellow/brown crust along the gum line
- Swollen red gums
- Dropping food when eating
- Rubbing or pawing at the mouth
- Acting less playful and social

Bad breath is usually the first and most obvious sign that your pet needs dental care. Don't assume it's normal - schedule a checkup!
Home Pet Dental Care
Brushing your pet’s teeth on a weekly or even daily basis is possible with practice (and patience). It’s important to keep plaque and tartar from building up on your pet’s teeth and finding their way under the gum line, where most oral infections take place. In addition to brushing, there are other options, such as chews and oral wipes, that you can use as well. We can help you choose the best options for your pet’s needs.
Professional Treatment at Our Hospital
We recommend yearly anesthesia dental cleanings at our hospital in Port St. Lucie. Our skilled team uses high-end cleaning tools and digital dental X-ray equipment to provide thorough treatment that keeps mouths healthier, longer. This includes:
- Examining your pet’s mouth, tooth by tooth
- Removing every trace of plaque/tartar or calculus above and under the gum line
- Polishing the tooth enamel smooth to delay buildup
- Using dental X-rays to check for damage under the gums
Non-Anesthesia Teeth Cleanings
We partner with Pet Dental Services, a non-anesthetic dental care provider that works out of our office once every three months. They perform all services under veterinary supervision and with the highest concern for safety, comfort, and quality treatment. We offer non-anesthesia dentistry to support, not replace, at-home care and anesthesia dental procedures. If you’d like to know more, give us a call today!
