Dental Care for Dogs

Periodontal disease is one of the biggest diseases affecting our pets today. By 3 years of age, 80% of dogs and cats will already have signs of periodontal disease! At Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we are fully equipped to take care of all your pet’s oral health needs. Please give us a call anytime to schedule a dental exam for your pet, it can make such a difference in their lives!

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?

We offer a large selection of dental diets and treats, as well as water additives and toothpaste. We also offer demonstrations and tips to help you get started with brushing your dog or cat’s teeth. In addition, we perform a complete comprehensive oral examination and dental prophy (scale and polish) under general anesthesia. We are fully equipped with ultrasonic scaling, polishing and digital dental x-rays, which allows us to fully examine your pet’s teeth above and below the gumline.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?

Ideally, every animal should have their teeth brushed once a day, but even several times a week is better than nothing! Here at Acadia, we can give you tips on how to get started and make this a more enjoyable experience for your pet.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Dental disease puts your pet at risk for serious heart, liver and kidney diseases. Bacteria often enter the blood stream from dental infections and can cause permanent damage to these organs. Pets are now living much longer and healthier lives, thanks to advances in veterinary dentistry.

Chers clients,

Nous sommes tous conscients de la situation que nous avons vécue dans les derniers mois avec l'arrivée du Covid -19. Due aux défis causés par ces circonstances, nous avons décidé de fermer temporairement l'Hôpital Vétérinaire Acadia. A partir de lundi le 14 septembre, 2020, notre équipe sera consolidé avec celle de l’Hôpital Moncton Animal Hospital.

Dans les jours à suivre nous communiquerons avec nos clients qui ont des rendez-vous & chirurgies prévues afin de les re-planifier à l'Hôpital Moncton Animal Hospital avec Dr. Boutet.

Nous vous remercions à l’avance pour votre patience et votre collaboration pendant cette période hors de l’ordinaire. Nous souhaitons que vous, votre famille et vos animaux soyez sains et saufs.

To our valued Acadia Veterinary Hospital clients:

We are all aware of the rapidly changing situation we have faced over the last few months. Due to the ongoing challenges brought on by COVID-19, we have decided to temporarily close Acadia Veterinary Hospital. This is effective starting Monday September 14, 2020. We have consolidated the team with our Moncton Animal Hospital location so that we can continue to care for your pets.

In the coming days, we will contact clients who have appointments and surgeries booked to reschedule them to Moncton Animal Hospital with Dr Boutet.

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding. We hope that you, your family and pets all continue to stay healthy and safe.
