Dental Care

Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet.  Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. 

  • In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from Periodontal Diseases.  
  • Disease begins with gingivitis and left untreated, the infection often spreads deeper into the tooth socket, destroying the bone.

There are a lot of different ways to improve your pets’ dental hygiene.  At Tolo our team recommends appropriate diet, home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection by you and a yearly inspection by trained professionals.

The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Tolo Veterinary Clinic, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.

If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease.
