A healthy pet starts with a healthy mouth
Dental disease in dogs and cats is very common, opens in a new tab, and very dangerous. Left untreated, it can lead to
major problems like heart disease and kidney failure. Regular dental care is critical to your pet’s
health, but they can’t do it alone. Banfield is here to help you brush up on your pet’s dental needs.
Fight dental disease with 3 easy steps
Remember these 3 easy steps to keeping your pet's mouth clean and healthy: Flip, Check, Treat.
The “Gold Standard” for Pet Dental Care?
Our veterinarians adhere to the highest standard of ongoing pet dental care. We believe that must include:
- Twice-yearly dental exams
- Annual dental cleanings
- Teeth brushing and regular home care

Use the Buddy System!
The tried and true buddy system can help you form new pet dental care habits - simply put your pet's dental care on your schedule:
- When you make your own dental appointment, make one for your pet.
- After brushing your teeth at night, brush your pet's teeth and give him a GREENIES ® treat.
- Involve your kids (brushing and treating are perfect chores), and learn new pet dental habits as a family.
