Commit to Annual Cat & Dog Teeth Cleanings

Our animal hospital in Palms of West LA focuses on cat & dog teeth cleaning to preserve teeth, prevent gum disease, and unnecessary pain in your pet. Afterall, we are your partner on your pet’s long-term health. Dental disease is all too common in middle-aged and senior pets. In fact, the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) cites that most pets over the age of three show the signs of gum disease.

Pet dental care including annual cat & dog teeth cleanings is a key aspect of veterinary treatment. When each pet comes in for a check-up, whether because they are ill or because they need a wellness exam, our veterinarians check the oral cavity for signs of illness. To ward off the degenerative effects of dental disease, we also advise our clients to commit to annual professional pet dental cleanings for their pet.  Schedule an oral health consultation for your pet today.

Dental Options for Any Budget

It is when tartar accumulates on the enamel of teeth that pets are at risk of gum disease. Tartar, or hardened plaque, contains bacteria that can spread under the gumline and cause irreparable damage. Ask us about a screening to test for pathogenic bacteria.

We also offer non-anesthetic dental cleanings on Thursdays and Sundays. Ask us for a quote of this dental procedure to learn more today.

At-Home Pet Teeth Cleaning and Dental Care

Pet dental health is so important for each pet’s lifelong, overall health. The team at Overland Veterinary Clinic recommends ongoing, at-home pet dental care to preserve your pet’s oral well-being. We recommend Healthy Mouth dental health care products, which are used by veterinarians and are VOHC (Veterinary Oral Health Council) certified. These include pet toothpaste, but also products that are easier to use such as treats, oral gels, water additives, and more! We can help you choose and utilize the best products for your pet’s lifestyle and needs. If you would like a demonstration on how to best brush your pet’s teeth, we can offer that too. Keep in mind that it’s easier to start with a little brushing and work your way up.

Professional cat & dog teeth cleaning is only part of what we do to help keep your pet’s mouth healthy. After all, your pet has dental needs on a daily basis and professional care only comes a few times a year. We partner with you to ensure that your pet is receiving the dental maintenance and preventive care that they need.

Did you know that by age three 8 out of 10 dogs and 7 out of 10 cats show signs of oral disease? Ask our veterinarians how you can prevent your pet from being another statistic!
