Dentistry

We believe dental hygiene is a very important part of your pet’s health and can often be the cause of serious illness. If left untreated, dental problems can often lead to larger systemic problems in your pet due to oral bacteria entering the blood stream and damaging the kidneys, heart and liver. Many of these problems can be avoided by scheduling regular dental check‐ups and dental cleanings for your pet.

At Animal Hospital of Old Saybrook, our veterinarians and technicians regularly perform anesthetized teeth cleanings using ultrasonic cleaning instruments, digital radiology, and assessment of tooth and gum health and extractions.
