Dental Care in Sarasota, Bradenton and Lakewood Ranch
The Importance Of Regular Dental Cleaning For Pets
Can you imagine what your teeth would look like if you never brushed them? It’s no different for cats and dogs, though many pet owners don’t pay very much attention to their pet’s dental health.
Bad breath and dirty teeth are unappealing, but many pet owners aren’t aware that these may be indicators of gum disease that can spread to the kidney, heart, and liver.
The gums are a boundary to the bloodstream, so unless you are regularly providing dental care for your pet, you are neglecting an important factor in their overall health and putting them at a higher risk for serious illness.
As beloved members of your family, your pets require preventative health care to remain with your family for a long time. Periodic dental cleaning for dogs and cats does not just help them look and smell better. It can have health benefits, too, such as:
Reducing the amount of bacteria in your pet’s mouth, which can access their bloodstream
Resolving painful conditions like impacted or infected teeth
Improving your pet’s nutrition by allowing them to comfortably eat a variety of foods and snacks
Diagnosing potential health problems before they fully develop
Increasing your pet’s happiness, quality of life and longevity
Benefits Of Digital Dental X-Rays For Dogs And Cats
Dental care for dogs and cats is an important part of keeping them healthy and happy. To take care of your pets, University Animal Clinic offers a wide range of dental services, including cleaning, digital dental x-rays and oral surgery.
Digital dental x-rays for pets are a relatively new technology to the Bradenton and Sarasota area that allows us to see what is really going on inside your dog’s mouth. Pets can’t tell us where it hurts or if they hit a tooth on a rock while rolling around in the backyard, so we use Digital Dental x-ray technology to find problems in the teeth and gums. This non-invasive diagnostic tool allows us to resolve potential problems before a bigger issue arises.
How To Know If Your Pet Needs Dental Services
If you notice the following conditions, you should contact University Animal Clinic immediately:
These are signs your pet may have a dental issue and could be in pain. The sooner you bring them in to see our dental team, the faster we can diagnose and resolve the issue.

Schedule a dental cleaning in Bradenton and examination for your dog or cat today, and we can create a schedule of regular appointments to make sure your beloved pet is receiving the care they need to stay in tip-top shape!
Oral Surgery For Pets In Bradenton, Sarasota & Lakewood Ranch
Cats rely on their teeth for survival in many cases. They use them to eat, hunt and even play, so their dental health is especially important. Sometimes oral surgery is necessary to remove broken or impacted teeth or clean up infections around the gums.
Oral surgery for dogs can also be an essential service, especially since dogs love to chew on toys or bones. Dog mouths that harbor broken teeth or infected gums can give off a foul odor and may cause your dog to be in chronic pain.
University Animal Clinic performs oral surgery for dogs and other pets in Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and throughout the Bradenton, FL, area. Call us today to schedule an appointment for your pet’s dental care services at our AAHA-Accredited animal clinic.

I took my galah Rosie for a general physical. The staff and vet took the time to show me (as a new bird owner) how to clip nails and wings and what to look for as far as outward signs of her health.
I just moved to Florida, and looking for a veterinarian I came across university animal clinic walking around the plaza so I decided to stop in and get information on the veterinarians, the women at the front desk was so kind and caring, I unfortunately forgot her name.
Can’t recommend highly enough!!! The staff is extremely friendly and the Vet is energetic and very knowledgeable and easy to talk to! They work with exotic animals which is a plus! We brought our bearded dragon that formed an abscess and they had her all fixed up in 20 minutes!!
I love Dr. Rill. Our little Cafe had been struggling with an ear infection for almost a year and Dr, Rill never gave up on making her better. I learned so much from him. I love his assistants! They are kind and treat the animals with respect. And, they are kind to us humans as well.
Great clinic for a ferret! Friendly staff, professional doctor!
I am, as I have been for a good 20 years, still a satisfied patron of University Animal Clinic. They do their best consistently and take comments to heart and make changes to serve our pets better.
Thank you to Doctor Simonson, Casey, Dr. Sam and the rest of the team for taking care of Wrangler! You all treated him like a pet of your own and made me feel so comfortable leaving him with you to watch over after such a scary incident. Everyone at your office is so knowledgeable and caring.
Best EVER!!! Dr. Leigh is fantastic!!! I am moving my dog’s care to her. This is after growing up with the same vet (22 years). She spent time with my dog and did a thorough examination. She took time to discuss treatment plans for her arthritis. Dr. Leigh and the techs are so knowledgeable.
I wasn’t holding my breath that a vet would work hard to help diagnose my leopard gecko. I was wrong. The doctor worked hard to diagnose why our pet lizard stopped eating & ran a battery of tests.
Vets and staff are knowledgeable and efficient. Clean and friendly Vet office. My dog now goes in to see her Vet with out balking.
