Dentistry

Did you know that pet dental care is one of the most often overlooked components of veterinary care? It only stands to reason, then, that dental disease also happens to be among the most commonly diagnosed medical conditions in adult dogs and cats. In fact, an estimated 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over the age of 3 suffer from some type of dental problem. If left untreated, periodontal disease can spread infection throughout the body, impacting everything from the kidneys and lungs to the heart, and evening shortening your pet’s life. Help your pet beat the odds by making a commitment to regular dental care, both professional and at home.

Ceres Veterinary Clinic offers preventative and advanced pet dentistry services to keep your companion’s mouth healthy and clean for life! From routine examinations of the teeth and gums to thorough cleanings and teeth polishing using the most modern and up to date equipment available. We also have the ability to perform dental x-rays, should further analysis of your pet’s oral health be deemed necessary. If evidence of an existing oral health problem is detected, our team is experienced in treating and managing these situations and can perform various advanced procedures, such as tooth extractions, as needed.

It’s important to note that all pets must be sedated while undergoing any type of dental procedure, including cleanings. This is for their own safety and ours. Rest assured that we’ve taken every measure to reduce risk, using only the safest and most effective anesthetic products, and carefully monitoring our patients’ wellbeing at all times while in our care.

Lastly, but just as important, is the role you play as part of your pet’s dental care team. Annual cleanings aren’t enough to keep plaque and tartar at bay and to prevent dangerous bacteria from forming on your pet’s teeth and below their gum line. That’s why it’s so important that you continue the work we started by brushing your pet’s teeth at least three times a week. If you need guidance, our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be glad to help. Together we’ll work hard to help your pet achieve a lifetime of good oral health.

      Dr. Bettencourt and his staff are the best. I would never consider taking any of my furry family members any place else. From toe nail clippings to major surgeries, etc. you will not find a more compassionate and caring staff.

      when we got our 6 week old Bassett hound we thought we had a healthy pup four days of having her she was sick and no vet would take us in Dr Cassidy welcomed us. none of us thought she would survive but here it is 2 years later and miss copper is healthy. Then we had to bring in our english mastiff with possibilities of having to either amputate or put her down. today miss molly mae is fully recovered with all four legs.

      The vet and the technicians are great, but the ladies who answer the phone are rude.
