The health of your pet’s teeth is very important. Dental health is about a lot more than fighting bad breath and yellowing teeth. It can actually be the difference between a healthy pet and a sick one. Pets whose teeth are not taken care of can suffer from a number of serious problems, like tooth loss, tooth abscess, burning gums, extreme pain, and kidney disease. By age three, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have some evidence of dental disease. Regular exams help maintain your pet’s dental health and prevent future issues.
Animal Hospital of Perth Amboy offers complete pet oral health services, including:
- Dental exams
- Annual dental cleanings/polishing
- Tooth removal
- Epulis removal
- Growth/mass removal

Brushing your pet’s teeth between cleanings is the best way to keep their mouth healthy. Interested in learning how to brush your pet’s teeth? Our veterinarians will be happy to help you get started. If your pet hates the toothbrush, our veterinarians can also suggest products that will help.
