Bad breath or periodontitis?

Periodontitis won’t just give your pet bad breath, it can stop your pet’s heart! Periodontitis leads to bacterial infections and organ disease.

Avoid periodontitis for your pet in three steps:

  1. Regular home brushing
  2. Professional teeth cleanings
  3. Healthy food choices

Have your pet’s teeth cleaned and their dental health assessed by one of the veterinarians at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic at Luling! Our dental services include:

  • Dental exams. Stop problems before they’re out of control with a dental exam to look for pain, disease, or broken teeth.
  • Dental cleanings. Have your pet’s teeth painlessly cleaned under anesthesia with top-of-the-line tools for ultrasonic cleaning and scaling.

Equine Dentistry

Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic is well equipped to care for your equine’s medical needs and offers on-site equine dentistry, too. We are also available for farm calls and will visit your horse’s location for the convenience of our patients and clients.

Dentistry is an important part of equine health care because a horse’s teeth will actually grow nonstop for up to 25 years. Horses also rarely have the ability to self-grind their own teeth, which means the majority of horses need a consistent floating schedule. Equine teeth should be examined every year to detect and correct any long or sharp teeth. Our veterinarians recommend annual dental exams once your horse reaches 2 years of age. These exams decrease the risk of colic and increase a horse’s ability to chew properly, which makes digestion easier and ensures your horse gets all the nutrients he or she needs to stay healthy.
