Dental Care for Dogs

Did you know that by the age of 3, most dogs have some level of dental disease? Did you also know that dental disease is preventable with a good oral health care program that consists of things you can do at home? It’s true, and still, dental disease is the most common disease facing our pets today.

Unfortunately, dental disease means more than bad breath and an unsightly smile. If left untreated, dental or periodontal disease can also lead to organ damage when bacteria gain entry into the bloodstream.

What types of canine dental care services are offered at your hospital?


Avon Animal Hospital cares about your dog’s oral health. We are happy to provide complete oral health assessments and treatments, including exams, dental radiographs, scaling and polishing (aka dental cleanings), dental extractions and a wide array of home care options including dental diets.

How often should I brush my dog’s teeth?


Daily brushing is the gold standard. The great news is that most dogs learn to look forward to having their teeth brushed when it is a part of their daily routine. The sooner you start, the better. Be sure to pick up that brush and paste at your first puppy visit!

Why is oral and dental health important?


Dental health is vital in the prevention of oral disease, which can affect the quality of your pet’s life, cause pain and suffering and contribute to organ failure and other diseases.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Wednesday, March 18, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed reception area” policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain in your vehicle and use your cell phone to please call the number posted on our windows. We will take a history from outside of your vehicle, and bring your pet into the clinic for an examination with the veterinarian. We will then return to your vehicle with your pet to discuss our recommended treatment plan. If you do not have a cell phone please knock our door to let us know you have arrived and then return to your vehicle.

2. We are continuing to accept appointments for urgent or sick pets and equine, as well as time-sensitive vaccinations. All other services will be scheduled for a later time.

3. We are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday to Friday: 8:00 am - 7:30 pm. Saturday: 8:00 am - 3:00 pm and Sunday: CLOSED

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 3-5 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, but do not enter the hospital. Our staff will bring your order to your car and take payment over the phone. You can also use our online store and have your food delivered directly to your home. To sign up for the online store, visit our website.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
