An often overlooked aspect of necessary care for our animals is their dental health. It may seem silly, but regular brushings of our pet’s teeth is good preventative care. Harmful bacteria from old food can build up in our pet’s mouth along the gum lines and in the teeth. When this happens the risk for serious infection is exponential, since the bacteria can enter the bloodstream through a cut in the mouth or tongue. Bay Animal Clinic provides dental procedures such as teeth cleaning, tooth extraction and even some periodontal (gum disease) procedures. Our staff is able to show you proper techniques to keep your pet’s tongue, teeth and gums healthy through brushing and yummy treats that clean while being eaten.
