Dentistry

Clean, strong teeth and healthy gums are cornerstones to your pet’s overall health and well-being. Without regular care, your pet’s mouth can become home to everything from tartar and plaque buildup to gingivitis and dangerous bacteria which can eventually lead to more serious problems, like dental disease and even organ damage. Many pet owners are surprised to learn that lack of adequate dental care can even shorten their four-legged friend’s lifespan.

The good news is you can help your pet beat the odds and enjoy a clean, healthy mouth for life, simply by making a commitment to regular dental care. Veterinary Healing Center of Folsom offers comprehensive, professional pet dental care for both routine, preventative care as well as the treatment and management of existing oral health problems.

Our hospital is well-equipped and our team highly skilled in all aspects of pet dentistry. Whether it’s a simple exam or cleaning, or a more advanced procedure like an extraction or oral surgery, your pet will be in excellent hands with us! Even if you’ve never given your pet’s oral health a second thought, it’s never too late to start. We’ll get your loved one on the path to good dental health in no time!

Some of the common signs that a pet may be suffering from a dental problem include:

  • Excessive drooling

  • Changes in chewing or eating habits
  • Broken or missing teeth
  • Swollen or bleeding gums

      Brought PeeWee, who lost use of his back legs, in today for the first time and were treated with calm and care. I love the Eastern approach and we all have high hopes that acupuncture, laser treatment, and some herbs will fix the hitch in his giddyup and restore his youthful step again. Fingers crossed.

      I'm very happy with Veterinary Healing Center of El Dorado Hills. They have treated both my dogs, and have specialized their treatment to their individual needs. I appreciate the fact they are interested in what's best for the dog, not what I've experienced with other clinicians.

      We started seeing Dr Cahoon and Dr McKerney because we needed alternative health care for our 12yr old mutt. We specifically chose Veterinary Healing Center for their knowledge and experience with Eastern Medicine applications. Our family is overjoyed for our pet and the pain relief he is now experiencing since starting his treatment plan just a few months ago. The staff is always friendly and attentive. The prices are comparable to other veterinary offices. I highly recommend their services for your pets needs.
