Randolph Animal Hospital in Randolph, Vermont provides a full selection of services covering general and emergency care for pets of all kinds. One important facet of care often overlooked by owners is their pets' oral health. Regular dental care for pets is crucial to preventing the onset of diseases that, just like in humans, can lead to severe problems in the rest of the body if left untreated. Dental hygiene and oral health for dogs and cats is just as important as it is in their humans. The family pet uses its teeth for much more than just chewing. Playing, eating, cleaning and protection are all part of the duties of a pet's teeth. Regular dental care, checkups and home hygiene must be maintained in order for pets to lead healthy, happy lives.
