Keeping your pet’s mouth healthy is the single most important wellness procedure to add quality years to your pet’s life. Dental health is a very important part of a pet’s overall health, and dental problems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. We provide quality veterinary dentistry including traditional cleaning, adjustment, filing, extraction, or repair of your pets’ teeth and all other aspects of oral health care. Traditional dental cleaning includes scaling (to remove dental plaque and tartar) and polishing. Double Oak Mountain Animal Clinic is equipped with state of the art equipment and the latest technology to provide your pet with a safe dental procedure.
