Dental Care

dental03Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.

In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet's health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pet's dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.

The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings, including the area beneath the gums that you can't see or access at home.

If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Please call us at (505) 662-7444 today to learn more and schedule your pet's dental cleaning.

  • Boarding

    Ridgeview Veterinary Hospital offers boarding for a variety of pets from small pocket pets to dogs and cats.

    When you board your dog with us, we will let your pet out to play and run in our fenced grass yard. If your small dog is sociable we will allow your pet to play with other small dogs. We have cages for smaller dogs and large runs for large or multiple dogs in the same family.
