Dental Care


Simple and effective prevention and treatment.

The American Veterinary Dental Society tells us that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of 3. Dental disease affects more than just the teeth and gums. Tooth damage, decay, and inflammation or infections of the gums can result in serious medical problems for pets, such as heart, lung, and kidney disease.

What do the experts recommend? Lafayette Animal Hospital chooses a simple, effective three-point prevention program:

  • Oral exams at every wellness visit
  • Regular dental cleanings
  • Home dental care regime

As our veterinarians perform the oral exam at every wellness visit, we are able to make recommendations for cleaning based on your pet’s unique health, age, and dental status. Cleanings are performed in the office under anesthesia in order to minimize trauma and stress for your animal companion. We are then pleased to advise you in methods for an at home dental care regime, with gentle techniques that many pets and their owner’s come to enjoy.

Working together to keep pets happy and healthy.
