Cat and Dog Teeth Cleaning in Hudson, NC

Did you know that approximately

80% of dogs

over the age of 3 and about 70% of cats over the age of 4 have some form of dental disease?

At Hudson Animal Hospital, we want your four-legged family member to stay in good health in every aspect, and their oral health is just as important as the health of their heart, lungs, and other major organs. Yet, dental disease is one of the most common health problems we see in adult dogs and cats! With proper dental care, your companion can avoid the discomfort of dental disease and live a happier life.

To combat tartar and dental disease, we recommend annual dental checkups and routine teeth cleanings. It’s also important to brush your pet’s teeth at home at least a few times a week, using cat or dog-friendly toothpaste and a toothbrush designed especially for pets. Taking care of your pet’s teeth at home is a big step towards preventing an oral infection.
