Healthy Animals - Healthy People


Keeping your pet’s teeth healthy will add to the overall health of your animal. Dental disease is the #1 disease entity affecting adult pets. Based on a study by the American Veterinary Dental Society, more than 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats develop some degree of periodontal disease by the age of 3 years.

Our dentistry team provides progressive oral health care through the diagnosis and treatment of many oral conditions such as gingivitis, periodontal disease, malocclusions, fractured teeth, oral tumors, or painful cavity-like lesions.

The OSU Veterinary Medical Hospital is fortunate to have a board certified veterinary dentist in the hospital every Thursday to provide optimal dental care for your pet. In addition, our veterinarians provide preventive dental care as part of the total wellness care for your pet.
