Preventive Dental Care for Pets

Preventive care is an important aspect of comprehensive care. That's why we offer the services your pet needs to maintain a healthy smile and catch potential problems early so they don't become extreme issues. Our team provides effective teeth cleaning for cats and dogs to remove bacteria that cause decay. We also offer scaling to gently remove the buildup or tartar to protect your pet from gum disease and infection.

Dentist for Dogs and Cats

Your pet needs a dentist just like you do to protect their oral health. That's why our Waterloo dentist for dogs and cats provides the treatments your furry friend needs. The overall well-being of your pet is impacted by their dental health because if an infected tooth or severe gum disease goes untreated, it jeopardizes other aspects of their health, including heart problems and digestion.

If your pet has a tooth that is chipped or broken, it becomes a gateway to infection, which causes pain, just like a toothache. Tender gums or compromised teeth make it difficult for your pet to chew food, leading to malnutrition and compromising their overall health. Our team provides the reliable care your pet needs with the compassion they deserve to protect their oral health.

Our Dental Care Process

We understand that your pet has a special place in your heart. That's why we take the time to get to know you and ask questions to understand any concerns or behavioral changes you've noticed in your pet. Our team performs dental care in two visits. During the first visit, we conduct a consultation, complete with bloodwork, to determine if your pet is physically healthy enough for dental treatments and to determine what services they need. For the second visit, we perform the dental services your pet needs.

Our office is equipped with an in-house lab to provide quick results. This information is critical to determine if your dog or cat can receive anesthesia during their dental treatments. We don't want to cause you or your pet any unnecessary stress, so we only recommend treatments they need. Our dentist consistently makes your pet's peace of mind a priority, and we look for ways to maximize their comfort throughout the appointment. From cleanings and polishing to extracting cracked or broken teeth, you can count on us to prioritize your pet's needs.

Pet Dentist FAQs

You love your pet, and it's natural for you to want to understand what treatments they need and how they will boost their health. That's why we encourage you to share your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your dog or cat's custom treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about cat and dog oral care in Waterloo:

Can pets use normal toothpaste?

No. Pets cannot use human toothpaste. Our dentist will provide a list of approved animal toothpaste if you want to clean your pet's teeth at home.

Our dentist will provide helpful tips and valuable insight into which chew toys are safe for your dog. Some chew toys are designed to clean your dog's teeth as they gnaw on them.

There are a few reasons your pet may have bad breath, including gingivitis or an infected tooth. Our compassionate dentist will carefully examine your pet's oral health to determine if the problem lies in their dental structures.
