Dental Care

Oral hygiene is extremely important to the overall health of your pet and care needs to be provided to keep the mouth healthy. Oral hygiene starts at home with regular brushing, proper chew toys, and special treats for keeping gums and teeth healthy. However, significant tartar and plaque build up on teeth after the first couple of years and can cause significant disease by three to four years of age if proper care is not maintained.  Georgetown Veterinary Hospital provides professional dental care for your pets.

Please make an appointment for your pet’s dental cleaning by calling 434 977 4600.
