Professional Veterinary Dental Care in Madisonville, LA

With four out of five pets developing periodontal disease by age three, Dr. David Moores, DVM, strongly encourages pet owners to establish a healthy dental care routine for their furry friends to celebrate this month. As explained by Dr. Moores, “Pet owners can keep their pets’ teeth, gums and other oral tissues in excellent condition with a combination of at-home care routines and professional care from our skilled vets.”

Daily brushing sessions and access to dental-health chews help remove plaque before it has a chance to harden. At regular dental care appointments for dogs and cats, skilled vets remove hardened deposits on the teeth and inspect the structures to assess the need for additional care. This excellent approach to pet dental care minimizes tooth decay and helps keep periodontal disease at bay.

The vets at Tchefuncte Animal Hospital, LLC, assess the condition of each patient’s teeth and gums to determine the level of care needed throughout the year. Most pets only need to visit the clinic for dental care annually, while high-risk patients may need to come in more often. The regular visits allow pets to retain their ability to eat normally and live without pain from untreated dental problems, such as cavities and cracked teeth.

While visiting this clinic, all pets will always receive prompt and thorough care for illnesses, injuries and other medical and dental conditions of all kinds. All vets perform a comprehensive examination of every visit and use high-tech imagery tools, as needed, to assess the medical and dental health of their patients.

Pet owners in the Mandeville, St. Tammany Parish and Covington, LA area are welcome to contact Tchefuncte Animal Hospital, LLC, for professional dental care for their beloved furry friends.
