Bad breath can be the first sign of dental disease.
"THE VET WANTS TO PUT MY DOG UNDER AND CLEAN HIS TEETH, IS THIS REALLY NECESSARY? HE'S A LITTLE GUY AND I'M AFRAID HE WON'T RECOVER. MY FRIENDS SAY THEY USE MILK BONE BISCUITS."
The SIMPLE ANSWER is Yes, your little dog does need a dental. And, even though we know you are going to worry---he's your baby after all--- Don't worry too much because we use the safest anesthetics available in both human and veterinary medicine.
Milk bones, unfortunately, will not clean you pet's teeth. As a matter of fact, nothing takes the place of a thorough, professional scaling and polishing. And while we are cleaning and polishing, we look for abscesses under the gum line, loose teeth and other diseases like cancer and Oral Resorptive Lesions.
WE DON'T DO ANY UNNECESSARY PROCEDURES AND WE DON'T PULL TEETH WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSION!
