You work hard to keep your pet happy and healthy. You schedule annual wellness appointments, feed a healthy diet, provide plenty of exercise and offer lots of TLC. But, what about your pet’s dental health?

Did you know that pet dentistry is the most often neglected component of animal health care? Yet, without proper attention, all kinds of health problems can arise, up to and including dental disease, and serious, even life threatening medical conditions. In other words, it’s a big deal.

You can help your companion beat the odds by making a commitment to regular dental care. At Acadiana Veterinary Clinic, we offer all of the professional pet dentistry services needed to manage all of your pet’s oral health care needs. From routine preventative care to the advanced treatment of existing oral health problems to advice and guidance on at-home dental care, together we’ll keep your loved one smiling pretty for life!

Our hospital features a state of the art dental suite, complete with cutting edge technology and equipment. This includes modern and safe ultrasonic scaling tools, which we use to clean each tooth thoroughly – above and below the gum line. The teeth are then polished to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. We also offer fluoride treatments to help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.

Should it be determined that your pet is already suffering from an existing dental problem, we can help with that as well! Whether it’s a dental x-ray to gather a more detailed analysis of your pet’s dental health, a tooth extraction to remove a diseased tooth or minor oral surgery to repair a bigger problem, we’re prepared to get your pet’s dental care under control once and for all. We’ll even show you ways that you can help your pet maintain clean teeth and healthy gums, such as home brushing and the use of certain pet dental care products.

Your pet deserves to enjoy a healthy, happy smile, and we want to work with you to make that happen. Even if you’ve never given your companion’s oral health a second thought, it’s never too late to start! Give us a call today to schedule your pet’s next dental appointment.
