My Pet’s Veterinarian says that they have bad / diseased teeth, what should I do?

If your veterinarian says your dog or cat’s teeth are bad or diseased, it often means that your pet has significant periodontal disease and an evaluation under anesthesia including intra-oral radiographs would be recommended to evaluate the teeth further.

This is a circumstance in which you should ask your veterinarian to refer you to a board certified veterinary dentist. Often, we have a wide range of treatment options available that will best meet your dog or cat’s individual needs and in certain cases we may be able to save teeth that otherwise would be extracted.
