Aurora Pet Dental
Mission Viejo Veterinary Hospital provides Aurora pet dental services for dogs and cats.
Dental disease is one of the most important, yet overlooked, ailment in veterinary medicine. Located in South Aurora, CO we provide pet dental services for customers throughout the South Aurora, Parker, Southlands and Mission Viejo areas.
Bad breath, pawing at the mouth, difficulty eating and chewing food, are but a few of the symptoms of poor oral health. Ignored, they can lead to gum inflammation and periodontal disease, which is caused by infection from plaque and tartar build-up on pets' teeth. If addressed promptly, the early stages of gingivitis can be treated and the condition reversed. However, if allowed to progress, irreversible periodontitis can occur along with chronic bacterial infection, which can enter the bloodstream and may damage the kidneys, liver and heart.
Periodontal disease is one of the most prevalent diseases seen by veterinarians. It is also one of the easiest to prevent.

At Mission Viejo Veterinary Hospital, we stress yearly (and sometimes twice-a-year) oral examinations to determine pet dental health. We have two dental specials a year- once in February to help celebrate Pet Dental Health Month, and once in November. Please call us to set up a reservation during these times.
Safe, effective dental cleanings on dogs and cats can only be performed under anesthesia. Prior to anesthesia our doctors require a current examination during which they can prescribe appropriate blood testing.
