Our veterinarians provide dental services including routine cleaning and polishing (dental prophylaxis), digital dental x-rays, and surgical extractions to manage and treat severe oral disease conditions.
Taunton Cat Hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art oral surgical equipment and the latest technology to provide your pet with a safe dental procedure.
Feline Dental Care
Routine and preventive dental care is vital to your cat's long term health. Pets with poor oral hygiene can develop periodontal disease, which can often lead to heart, lung, and kidney disease.
Taunton Cat Hospital offers a full range of dental services for pets including dental examinations, dental extractions, and oral surgery as well as home care instructions for keeping your cat's teeth clean and healthy.
Routine Pet Dental Exams
Our veterinarians perform basic oral exams on all our patients during their comprehensive physical exam. Kittens will be examined to detect any problems related to the deciduous (baby) teeth, missing or extra teeth, swellings, and oral development. Senior cats will be evaluated for developmental anomalies, the accumulation of plaque and tartar, periodontal disease, and oral tumors.
Dental Care Tips for Cats
- Schedule a dental oral exam for your cat every year.
- Schedule regular dental cleanings as recommended by your veterinarian.
- Brush your pet's teeth daily, or give your pet a dental hygiene chew every other day.
- Serve cat food and treats that control tarter and plaque and promote good dental health.
