Efficient Pet Dentists
The condition of your pet's teeth has a significant impact on their overall health and well-being. Be sure to get your pet's teeth checked regularly by the veterinarians at Fort Hunt Animal Hospital.
Conditions such as heart disease or liver problems are just a couple of problems that poor dental health can cause. Make sure your pet's teeth are checked by a vet at least once a year.
Dental cleaning for your pet involves the administering of anesthesia and teeth are ultrasonically scaled and polished just as yours are at your own 6 month dental checkup.
