At Marina Hills Animal Hospital, we educate the pet owners we serve about the importance of regular pet dental care. According to the American Veterinary Dental Association, more than 50% of adult cats and dogs in America have some kind of tooth or gum disease. Left untreated, these diseases can cause a host of medical problems and shorten your pet's life span. Fortunately, regular pet dental care can eliminate these problems.
Good dental health is essential to your pet's overall health and well being. A major component of your pet's dental health should be regular professional dental cleanings to support a healthy mouth and gums.
In order to maintain your pet's dental health, we offer the following products:
There are two types of Dental Services available:

The Importance of Pet Dental Care
Our veterinarians are strong proponents of preventative dental care for pets. According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), pet dental disease can not only cause pain and difficulty while eating, but can also lead to organ damage if left untreated. The AVMA maintains that periodontal disease is the number one health complaint in cats and dogs. They warn that such gum disease in pets can lead to diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, kidney disease, and other life threatening disorders.
