Dental Care

The Importance of Regular Pet Dental Care:

 80% of dogs and 70% of cats are estimated to have dental disease by the age of three.

Dental disease not only causes bad breath, but it leads to pain, infection, tooth loss and eventually injury to your pet’s internal organs such as their liver and heart.

Regular and professional dental care is key to maintaining good oral health.  The professional dental cleaning at Oak Elm Animal Hospital will help with the build-up of plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth.   Oak Elm Animal Hospital offers teeth cleaning, teeth extractions, dental check up and oral surgeries at very affordable prices, including:

  • A thorough tooth examination to check mobility and the presence of fractures
  • An ultrasonic scaling to remove plaque and tartar
  • Polishing with a special paste to smooth the tooth enamel
  • Digital x-rays to examine the teeth, roots, and bone

Dental Care At Home

Regular home dental care will prevent the buildup of plaque on your pet’s teeth. By brushing your dog or cat’s teeth, you can significantly reduce the amount of plaque buildup on your pet’s teeth. Also ask us about alternative at-home dental care options such as rinses, chews, and specialized food. We are happy to help you find the option that works best for you and your pet!

All the reviews mirror my thoughts of this establishment. It is outstanding. The doctor is a kind, helpful, compassionate, understanding, doctor, who went above and beyond to help my suffering dog. The staff was also kind, compassionate, helpful and friendly. I did not read the reviews before I went, but I can confirm, they are 100% accurate. I cannot thank this office enough for all that you did for my dog. It is a miracle that she is better and I am so grateful for all the efforts made to help her. Thank you so much.

The vet was so incredibly sweet. You can tell he really loves his job and cares. He was able to keep my dog relaxed, comfortable and not feel nervous. He was honest and upfront. He sent us home with medication that started to work immediately. I'm so happy this place was recommended to me and think this will be my new Dr for my old guy, hoping he gives us a few more good years.

I would like to single out Dr J. Iqbal. He is simply outstanding, going far beyond what you would normally expect from a service provider. If we had a vet in our family, we could not get more compassionate care than Lou got from Dr Iqbal. Everyone working in healthcare could learn from him! They have now become my primary vet.Highly recommend !
