At Dames Point Animal Hospital, our Jacksonville veterinarian is proud to serve the surrounding areas of Arlington and the nearby north Florida beaches as well. Our goal is to provide the highest level of care to your pet at our full-service animal hospital, in addition to pet boarding service when you need them. One important service we offer that many pet owners aren’t aware of, however, is that of dental care for your pets.

The Importance of Pet Dental Care

All too often, pet owners overlook the importance of pet dental care. What they don’t realize is that caring for your pet’s teeth is just as important as caring for any other aspect of your pet’s physical health. In fact, poor dental health in pets can make your pet more likely to develop other physical health problems, including heart disease and other ailments. Not to mention, poor dental hygiene can be painful for your pet, resulting in tooth decay, lost teeth, abscesses, and more. In fact, one of the most common dental problems in pets is that of gum disease, which leads to painful and swollen gums, in addition to bleeding.

Pet Teeth Cleanings in Arlington

We’re happy to offer pet teeth cleanings in Arlington. If your pet has never had a professional teeth cleaning done, we highly recommend talking to our veterinarian about having this done for your pet. Regular cleanings are a great way to remove excess tartar and plaque buildup, reducing your pet’s chances of developing painful gum disease, cavities, or other dental problems.

Additional Cat and Dog Dental Care

In addition to pet dental cleanings, we’re also proud to offer a number of other cat and dog dental care procedures in our office. For example, we can perform digital dental X-rays, which are great for diagnosing potential dental problems that may not otherwise be obvious with a routine exam. Digital X-rays are also ideal for producing the clearest possible picture, allowing us to spot potential tumors, hidden cavities, or other problems with precision and confidence.

Furthermore, we can also perform a number of dental surgeries here in our office. Whether your pet needs a tooth extracted or we identify a mass in the mouth that needs to be removed, we can handle this right in our full-service animal hospital. This saves you from needing to find another clinic to perform dog and cat dental care.
