Veterinary Dentistry & Pet Dentist:
More Than a Pretty Smile
All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care offers comprehensive dental care options for the pets of Katy. Just like people, pets benefit from good dental hygiene and can develop periodontal disease when oral hygiene is not practiced.
Keeping the mouth clean not only prevents malodorous breath, it also stops the spread of bacterial disease. In an unhealthy mouth, the pet’s gums become inflamed, allowing a breeding ground for bacteria and a place where the bacteria and toxins can enter the body and spread to other systems It is estimated that keeping a pet’s mouth clean can add up to five years to its life.

At home, pet owners can provide an environment and habits that encourage excellent dental health. The staff and veterinarians of All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care will instruct pet owners on how to brush their pets’ teeth. We carry pet toothbrushes designed to comfortably reach and clean pet teeth as well as toothpaste and products that can be used in your pet’s water to improve dental health.
Some of the products we carry for dental care include:
- CET Pet Dental Health Products

All Pets Animal Hospital & 24-Hour Emergency Care encourages pet owners to have regular veterinary exams for their pets, and every pet that comes to us receives a dental exam as part of his or her checkup. As pets age, we can closely monitor the health of their gums and teeth in order to provide early detection and prevent or control oral health issues.
If you have any concerns about your pet’s health or need help getting started with regular at-home care, please do not hesitate to contact our technicians or veterinarians for assistance.
