Our vet team at Delbrook Mall Animal Hospital is dedicated to doing everything we can to help pets stay as happy and healthy throughout every stage of life. It's why we're committed to providing excellent services, including pet dental exams and cleanings.
Your pet's dental health has such a powerful influence over its overall well-being. This is because bacteria in the mouth can infect the gums, damage the teeth, and even leach into the bloodstream where they could go on to infection organs, joints, and other tissues throughout your pet's body.

Common pet dental treatments include:
