Pet Dentistry in Mechanicsburg
Providing Proper Dental Care for Patients across Central Pennsylvania
Did you know that proper dental care is an important part of your pet’s overall health, comfort, and well-being? In fact, some studies have shown that veterinary dentistry may extend the life of your pet by up to five years! Despite this, dental care is one of the most often-overlooked veterinary services.
It’s important to remember that poor dental hygiene doesn’t only affect your pet’s teeth and gums; it can also lead to more serious issues, like liver, kidney, or even heart disease. Dogs, cats, and pets of all ages should undergo preventative dental care and maintenance to ensure that they are able to live their happiest, healthiest lives.

Maintain Your Pet’s Oral Health at Home
Just like humans, our pets require consistent at-home care and preventative maintenance when it comes to good oral hygiene and health. You can help ensure that your dog, cat, or other pet stays healthy by regularly brushing his/her teeth. Always use a special toothbrush and toothpaste that is approved for animals; never use human teeth brushing products on your pet. You can also use a dental rinse in your pet’s drinking water, as well as a prescription diet to ensure your pet’s oral health.
