FOR SANTA CLARITA DOGS & CATS
Proper care of your pet’s mouth and teeth is an important appointment in the schedule of veterinary care visits. Canyon Country Veterinary Hospital recommends regular cleanings to help protect your pet’s health. Because we believe this is so important, we perform an examination of your pet’s oral cavity every time you come in for regular wellness care.
MAKE TEETH CLEANING PART OF YOUR PET’S REGULAR ROUTINE

A routine of cleanings and good home care also reduce the risk of infection affecting the heart and kidneys. Most pets benefit from regular cleanings, and we always tailor our recommendations to your individual pet. Age, breed, and lifestyle of your pet can make a difference and are always taken into consideration.
In addition to cleaning, we can also perform mass removals and tooth extractions when needed. Our veterinarians will discuss any concerns and which procedures may benefit your pet.
