Dental care for pets, like many other areas of modern veterinary medicine, has evolved out of the longer life spans that modern pets enjoy. Teeth that nature designed to last a decade now have to last twice that long. Many breeds are predisposed to dental disease as they get older -- not to mention that "doggie breath" your pet may have developed as an adult. That bad breath is very likely an indication of underlying bacterial infection secondary to tartar build-up at the gum line.
In some cases, oral health issues can be an indicator of a serious underlying condition. Fountain Valley Animal Hospital is equipped with the latest equipment to perform dental prophylactic cleanings and tooth extractions. With every dental cleaning we perform digital dental X-rays to assess subgingival disease. Good oral health is a very important part of overall health as your pet ages. Our staff is more than happy to provide advice on at-home dental care and products that can be helpful in maintaining that beautiful smile! Come see us today for a routine cleaning to battle bad breath or a dental exam if you suspect that your pet is having problems chewing or is in pain.

Golden Retriever Lifetime Study
The Morris Animal Foundation Golden Retriever Lifetime Study is accepting applications from humans who share their lives with Golden Retrievers. The study looks at how lifestyle, diet, and exercise affect the longevity of this special breed. Applicants are asked to remain in the program for the duration of the dog's life. Benefits include reimbursement for yearly exams, labwork, etc. Please go online at the Morris Animal Foundation to register.
Search under the vet listing and click on our name. The Morris Animal Foundation will then contact us to ensure that your pet qualifies for the study. We look forward to helping your pet live a long, healthy, and happy life.
Your pet’s health is affected by the condition of their teeth and gums. When tartar builds up, bad breath is just one side effect. Tartar can cause an infection that may attack other major organs such as the heart. To make sure your pet lives a long and healthy life, we recommend you have their teeth cleaned at regular intervals, or whenever their teeth need attention.
From January 15 through March, we are offering 10% off on all dental cleanings. This includes blood work, anesthesia, and dental work. We look forward to seeing your pet to help you keep their teeth sparkling, their breath fresh, and their health the very best possible.
