Reasons to Seek Pet Dental in Alexandria

Puppy Brushing Teeth in Alexandria

Your pet can get cavities and gum disease, just like a person. Taking your pet to the veterinarian for dental care on a regular basis can prevent this from happening. As your pet’s veterinarian in Alexandria, we provide a range of dental services for pets in the surrounding community. Below are some of the most important reasons to take your pet in for regular dental checkups.

Benefits of Pet Dental Care

  • Vets know gum disease when they see it. We know the symptoms of dental disease and can quickly determine when your pet needs help.
  • We can give your pet get treatment for dental disease. When we clean your pet’s teeth, we’ll remove plaque, polish the enamel, perform cavity filings and make recommendations for further dental treatment.
  • Dental care prevents dental disease from negatively impacting your pet’s quality of life. By keeping your pet’s teeth clean and healthy, we can help prevent the spread of infection from your pet’s teeth and gums to other parts of the body.
  • Your pet’s vet can offer advice for maintaining your pet’s oral health. When you take your pet in for a dental examination, we can answer any questions you might have about pet dental care. We can also show you how to brush your pet’s teeth and recommend products like dental chews, to help you keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean and healthy.
  • A dental visit will help your pet get comfortable with the vet. Your pet will need to see the vet throughout his or her lifetime. Taking your pet in for regular dental care can help your pet get used to the visit, which can make these visits more comfortable for everyone.

I have been using Ft. Hunt Animal Hospital for about 30 years and have always found the doctors and staff to be very caring. I appreciate the time spent explaining specific findings and answering questions. I never feel rushed.
