It may surprise you that 78% of dogs and 68% of cats over the age of three have some form of dental disease. In fact, dental disease is one of the most common diseases pets may have during their lifetime.
Professional dental care is a vital step in keeping your dog or cat healthy and comfortable. Regular teeth cleanings are as important for your pet as they are for humans. At The Bluffs Pet Clinic, we have state-of-the art equipment to take care of your pet’s dental needs. We have dental radiography, allowing us to examine the tooth and bone under the gum line, ultrasonic dental scalers, and high and low speed hand pieces for drilling, cutting and polishing. We recommend regular oral examinations and dental cleanings, under general anesthesia, for all adult dogs and cats. As an AAHA accredited facility, we follow the AAHA Dental Care Guidelines
At Home Dental Care
A good start to oral health care for your pet is for pet owners to recognize the signs of oral and dental disease in your pet:
Call us immediately to schedule a dental exam if your pet shows any of the above symptoms!
Brushing your pet’s teeth once a day at home to prevent plaque and tartar buildup is important. Plaque, which is a buildup of bacteria, will develop into periodontitis. Periodontitis is where pockets of severe and painful infections develop within the mouth. Left untreated, it can result in tooth decay and bone loss.
At-home cleanings should only take a few minutes each day. We will be happy to teach you how to brush your pet’s teeth at home. Just give us a call or ask us during your pet’s next wellness exam.

I really feel like everytime I bring my pets in everyone makes me feel like my babies are their babies makes me feel super comfortable with the care that is provided. Not just another appointment you need to see.
I love how friendly everyone is, the moment you walk in the door you feel welcome. The care you have given my pets is exceptional, having alternative therapies and ways of treating animals is very important to me. Let's not leave out your outstanding communication with making follow up phone calls to see how my pet is doing and of course the compassion you show after the loss of a pet, the little extras you do mean a lot.
Bluff's pet clinic has always been great, honest, and genuinely caring. We moved away a few years ago and switched to a different vet. Well, it was then really realized how great Buffs is. There was no comparison. Bluffs is far superior. We have returned to Bluffs's and it's worth the drive!
I was so happy with the care Max got at The Bluffs. Your team is fantastic! Steve was fabulous and took a liking to Max right away, a true animal lover! They did not rush us and gave us many suggestions about him not taking to a litter pan (Good luck for us with that) He is getting neutered on November 28th. Looking forward to our next visit. Thank you so much!
I love how everyone interacts with my pet. They were so considerate of my feelings as well. Our previous vet clinic did not really interact with my dog. They just treated her like a piece of equipment that needed to be fixed. It was so impersonal. For this reason, we go to the Bluffs Clinic, where we feel understood and cared for.
