Dentistry

Providing your pet with quality dental care does much more than just prevent bad breath. Without the proper care and attention, your companion’s teeth and gums can become a haven for bacteria, which can eventually lead to dental disease, a serious condition that can wreak havoc on his or her entire body. Periodontal disease is something that affects the majority of adult dogs and cats, but the good news is it’s preventable, provided you make a commitment to pet dentistry, both professional and at home.

We offer professional pet dentistry services including routine and preventative care, such as cleanings and exams, as well as the treatment of existing oral health conditions.

Even if you’ve never paid much mind to your pet’s teeth, it’s never too late to start!

In addition to our role as your companion’s dentist, you also play an important role in helping your animal companion maintain good dental health. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will be happy to work with you to offer advice and guidance on dental care techniques that you can use at home to keep your pet’s teeth and gums clean in between vet visits. Together we will work hard to help your pet achieve a lifetime of good oral health.

  • What our clients have to say…

    • Brad Pinkerton

      Thank you to the staff at Animal Hospital of Ludington and especially Dr Paxton. We had no choice but to put our beloved Jasmine to sleep due to her condition. It was amongst the worst day of our lives. Dr Paxton and his wonderful staff treated us with the ultimate compassion and patience. The office even followed up within a few days later with a signed condolence card, a cast of her paw prints and a bottle with a bit of her fur. Janni and I are forever indebted to the kindness they showed to us. I HIGHLY recommend this office to anyone needing vet care for their pets.

    • Karlene Hintz Boeve

      ‘Five Stars’ for Dr Paxton as he is a caring, knowledgeable, experienced professional! I had an in-depth conversation around the benefits of Cytopoint injections for my Westie with seasonal dermatitis. Success! Cytopoint was the solution to measurable relief.
      Also I want to share my thoughts on Euthanasia for an aggressive, violent dog. If your veterinarian recommends euthanasia, you should give it serious consideration. Some dogs are not wired correctly. The safety of children, family, & community should be the priority over an aggressive dog. Don’t wait for a disaster to transpire. My family has suffered do to non action of our neighbors aggressive dog.

      I’ve experienced nothing but excellent care from Dr. Deines and Dr. Paxton and staff. From emergency visits to routine care and end of life decisions, they’ve been compassionate and trustworthy at every step. Any questions I’ve had, they discuss with me and make sure I understand. I highly recommend choosing their team to trust with your loved ones.
