Advanced Dental Care

One of the biggest advances over the years is how we deal with your pet’s dental problems. Primary Veterinary Care now has a brand new, state of the art dental unit that allows us to preserve many of those teeth that previously had to be extracted. By prophylactically cleaning your pet's teeth on a yearly basis, you are doing your part to keep your pet’s mouth healthy and pain free. Dental disease is an increasing concern in veterinary medicine. Some animals may have significant tartar and gingivitis as early 1-2 years of age. If left untreated, dental disease can contribute to heart disease, liver disease, and kidney disease, potentially shortening your pet's life as much as two years. Yearly dental exams and cleanings may increase the life-span of your pet tremendously.
