Dental Care for Dogs

Oral disease is a common, yet avoidable problem for dogs. It can lead to bad breath, swollen and painful gums, rotting or fractured teeth and overall mouth pain. These problems can cause bigger problems as well such as changes in appetite and attitude, oral abscesses and more. PetFocus Bedford South can provide a wide range of oral health care measures to help your dog continue to feel his/her best.

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?


We offer dental health assessments where we can explain the signs of poor oral health, give demonstrations on how to care for your dog’s teeth and give solutions to problems that may have already started. We also offer and recommend dental cleanings and necessary dental surgery to ensure a healthy mouth.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?


We recommend brushing your dog’s teeth at least three times per week with an enzymatic canine toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush.

Why is oral and dental health important?


Oral and dental health are important for day to day function. If your dog’s mouth is sore and it can’t eat properly which sometimes causes them not to eat at all. The healthier the teeth mean less risk of eroding gums, tooth decay and pain.
