All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital

Visit a qualified professional in Costa Mesa to discuss the dental health of your pet

As humans, we visit our dentist regularly for cleanings and checkups. We brush our teeth several times a day to avoid the development of periodontal disease and the formation of cavities. Why don’t we give this same care and attention to our pets?

Our qualified veterinarians at our Costa Mesa practice provide quality dental health solutions for pets. We know how important it is to target dental disease and keep the teeth healthy. Regular cleanings and examinations can keep bacteria from becoming an issue and entering the bloodstream, causing inflammation elsewhere in the body. Regular dental care can also reduce persistent bad breath.

Many issues can arise if pets develop periodontal disease. This includes the swelling of the gums, inflammation and soreness, bad breath, tooth loss, and difficulty chewing their food due to discomfort. To avoid this, pet parents are encouraged to work with a qualified professional to reduce the risk for this condition. It is believed that approximately 85 percent of pets already have periodontal disease by the age of three. This is preventable with appropriate care and attention from a veterinarian practice.

The team of All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital offers two types of dental cleanings including cleaning under anesthetics and non-anesthetic cleaning. The one appropriate for your pet will be decided based on their temperament and whether or not the pet can tolerate anesthetics. We consider all safety concerns and the severity of their condition to make an educated decision in regards to which method of treatment will be well-received and appropriate for the pet based on their specific, unique needs.

At All Creatures Care Cottage Veterinary Hospital, our team of professionals have worked with families in the community for three decades and continue to provide quality, compassionate care to pets to improve their overall quality of life. This includes dental health solutions to reduce the risk for the development of cavities and periodontal disease. Our practice can be contacted by calling  to schedule an appointment.
