Dentistry

Providing your pet with quality dental care does much more than just prevent bad breath. Without the proper care and attention, your companion’s teeth and gums can become a haven for bacteria, which can eventually lead to dental disease, a serious condition that can wreak havoc on his or her entire body. Periodontal disease is something that affects the majority of adult dogs and cats, but the good news is it’s preventable, provided you make a commitment to pet dentistry, both professional and at home.

Animal Hospital of Ludington has everything your pet needs to enjoy a healthy, happy mouth. We offer professional pet dentistry services including routine and preventative care, such as cleanings and exams, as well as the treatment of existing oral health conditions. Our team is highly skilled in the most modern pet dentistry techniques and we employ the use of cutting edge tools to provide your pet with the best available oral health care. Even if you’ve never paid much mind to your pet’s teeth, it’s never too late to start!

In addition to our role as your companion’s dentist, you also play an important role in helping your animal companion maintain good dental health. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to work with you to offer advice and guidance on dental care techniques that you can use at home to keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean in between vet visits. Together we will work hard to help your pet achieve a lifetime of good oral health.

      I’ve experienced nothing but excellent care from Dr. Deines and Dr. Paxton and staff. From emergency visits to routine care and end of life decisions, they’ve been compassionate and trustworthy at every step. Any questions I’ve had, they discuss with me and make sure I understand. I highly recommend choosing their team to trust with your loved ones.

    • Rebecca Murphy

      Such a caring staff and doctors. They genuinely love animals and are so compassionate. After my dear cat Jade died at age 19, they sent me a condolence package - her paw prints in plaster & a little keepsake bottle with a lock of her hair. It came as a complete surprise about a week after she passed. Warmed my ♥️ more than I can express.
