Your pet’s dental health is important to your pet and to you.

Historically, our recommendations to improve your pet’s heath have included one or more of three following home care procedures:

Physical Cleaning (i.e. Brushing)

Manual brushing is the best way to keep your pets mouth happy and healthy. Research has shown that daily brushing is the most effective way to maintain oral health. Our experience has been that owner compliance of this activity is extremely low.

Oral Dental Products (Hill’ Prescription Diet t/d Food)

T/d is a specially formulated food that promotes healthy teeth and gums. It is manufactured by Hill’s Science Diet and is available only through your veterinarian. The pet must actively chew the biscuit form food to achieve proper effectiveness. If the pet does not chew, but rater crunches and swallows the effectiveness is minimal.

Leba III

Leba III is an oral spray that when used properly and consistently, reduces plaque formation on the pet’s teeth. It does this by stimulating the enzymes in the pet’s own saliva to reduce plaque. Once again, owner compliance has been minimal.


Here’ a new approach to dental care for your pet!

What is the dental plan?

This dental plan is unique in that it takes the responsibility of the pet’s oral health from the owner and shifts it to the professionals. Once every six months your pet will be eligible to receive a complete dental cleaning at a reduced fee.

What are the benefits?
  • Reduction of guilty feelings for not following through with home dental care for lack of time or pet’s demeanor
  • Better oral health for the pet (less need for invasive dental procedures, such as extractions)
  • Improves general health by reducing bacterial showers and toxins that will damage liver, kidneys, etc.
  • Technicians will spend less time on the dental procedure if we keep up with the mouth’s health. This translates into less time under anesthesia, which again benefits your pet
Who is eligible for the plan?

Both cats and dogs are eligible for dental procedures once every 6 months.

What are the Fees?

The first dental event is at the regular fee or at the February special price then every 6 months the pet is eligible for a dental event at a 20% discount. This includes extractions, antibiotics, and intra-operative therapies, i.e. doxirobe. Follow up blood work, if recommended, is not included in the discount program.

How will I know when it is time for the recheck?

Our receptionists will contact you via e-mail or postcard depending on your preference.

How do I schedule the appointment?

Scheduling of the dental event shall have a centering date of 30 days within the 6 month anniversary of the previous dental.

Who evaluates the pet’s mouth at the 6 month check up?

The technician. If the technician or owner has a question, the doctor will evaluate the mouth at no charge. If other health issues need to be addressed at the dental review, a medical progress exam fee will apply. If the pet doesn’t need a dental cleaning in 6 months, the oral exam is free and the next dental event is at the discounted price.
