Supporting Oral Health with Cat & Dog Teeth Cleaning in McMurray, PA

Circle Paw

At Pleasant Valley Veterinary Clinic in McMurray, PA, we’re big on emphasizing the role dental care plays in your pet's health routine. Bad breath, often considered normal in dogs and cats, is actually a sign of poor oral hygiene and can lead to tartar buildup and dental disease. That’s why we recommend annual exams that include checking your pet’s teeth and gums, and scheduling a teeth cleaning appointment so we can treat existing dental problems and help prevent future ones.

Encouraging optimal dental health is just one way we serve our community's pets. If your best friend hasn’t had a dental check-up recently, consider scheduling a visit. It’s an excellent step towards safeguarding their health and can save you worry and expense later.

Come see us for a dental exam so we can keep your pet’s smile clean and healthy!

Why Dental Care is So Important for Pets

Dental care is vital for dogs and cats because it prevents dental diseases, which are common from a young age. By age three, most pets show signs of dental disease. Without treatment, this can lead to more severe problems, like tooth loss or disease of the heart, liver, and/or kidneys.

Routine oral exams, teeth brushing, use of approved oral products, and teeth cleanings at our animal hospital can prevent plaque and tartar buildup in pets. This, in turn, prevents even worse problems and a decrease in quality of life.
