Oral and dental diseases can occur unexpectedly, affecting the lives of our family pets. Periodontal (gum) disease is ranked as the most frequent clinical condition diagnosed in our pet companions and can lead to bad breath, significant oral pain, lack of appetite, and other more severe conditions.
At Virginia Veterinary Centers, we always recommend that you consult with your primary veterinarian should you develop any concerns with your pet’s oral health. Your veterinarian can then recommend a consultation with Dr. Sam Babbitt, our board-certified veterinary dentist, and oral surgeon. Our surgical dentistry department is ready and prepared to provide the best treatment and care for your family pet.
