Pet Dental

As a pet owner, it is important that your cat or dog receives the necessary dental care to stay happy and healthy. Just like humans, pets are susceptible to a variety of dental problems, from bad breath and plaque buildup to gingivitis and periodontal disease. Left untreated, these issues can cause pain and affect your furry friend’s overall health. At Prospect Ridge Veterinary Hospital in West Orange, NJ, we provide exams and cleanings to alleviate any discomfort your pet is experiencing and help it feel its best.

Regular Dental Exams at Prospect Ridge Veterinary Hospital

Scheduling regular dental checkups with our veterinarians at Prospect Ridge Veterinary Hospital is crucial in maintaining your pet's oral health. During these exams, we will perform a thorough dental cleaning and checking for any loose teeth, inflamed gums, or tartar buildup. Early detection is key, as it allows us to intervene with appropriate treatments before the issue escalates.

Proactive Dental Care for Your Pet

In addition to professional cleanings, there are steps you can take at home to promote your pet's dental health. Brushing your pet's teeth daily with a veterinary-approved toothpaste is ideal, however, dental chews or treats can also help reduce plaque and tartar buildup. Be sure to choose products specifically formulated for your cat or dog’s size and needs.
