Dental Care

Just like us, pets develop plaque buildup on their teeth. We brush, floss, go for regular cleanings and sometimes still manage to have problems with our teeth and gums. What about our pets? They need regular dental care too!

Dental health is a very important part of your pet’s overall health, and dentalproblems can cause, or be caused by, other health problems. Poor oral health canlead to serious infections that can enter your pet's bloodstream and affect organssuch as: the kidneys, liver, lungs, and heart.

Your pet’s teeth and gums should be examined at least once a year to check for early signs of dental disease and to keep your pet’s mouth healthy.

Did you know that by three years of age, most dogs and cats already have signs of dental disease, but the good news is…Dental disease can be preventable!

Signs of pet dental disease can include:

  • Bad breath
  • Loss of appetite or refusal to eat
  • Red, inflamed or bleeding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Excessive drooling
  • Painful mouth

We recommend brushing your pet’s teeth daily and regular professional cleanings that can be done conveniently in our office.

If your pet already has signs of dental disease and further treatment is necessary we are able to perform oral surgery using our advanced equipment, including the use of digital dental radiographs.

  • Rockville Centre, Garden City, Freeport, Baldwin, Uniondale, West Hempstead, Franklin Square, East Meadow, and neighboring towns in Nassau County, Long Island, New York
  • What a thorough, caring, and knowledgeable staff! I felt like Scarlett (my cat) got compassionate and focused care. My neighbor raved about Dr. Wyler and now I know why...but the entire staff displayed over the top attentiveness! Go there, everyone!
  • I have been going to Animal Medical Hospital for many, many years, and have had several pets treated by Dr. Douglas Wyler. He has always given them the best of care, and keeps me informed about what is going on with them. He and all the staff are just wonderful - Lisa, especially, has been so helpful! I would heartily recommend them to anyone looking for a caring and knowledgeable veterinarian!
  • We have been going to Whitestone Vet Care for over 10 years now. Our dog Twister is now 11 years old and due to the wonderful care she has received from Dr.Wyler and his staff over the years, she is as healthy and happy as a spring chicken.
  • This is my 1st dog and I just love this place. They are willing to answer all my questions and concerns. I never have to wait long and everyone is so loving and caring. I feel confident my Dog Max is being care for well.
  • Very satisfied with the care my cat, Sunkiss received. The technicians, veterinarian, and staff, were very professional, friendly, and concerned about her problem. Used them for my other tabby, Tiger; who had a grocery list of problems; but lived a comfortable life to the age of 16.5 years.
