Having good dental health is one of the foundations of a healthy body. Studies reveal that a staggering 80-90% of dogs aged 3 and older harbor some degree of periodontal disease, even if their teeth appear pristine and gleaming. For cats, this statistic falls between 50-90%. Pets afflicted with advanced dental issues face significant risks, as chronic infections can jeopardize vital organs. Fortunately, the most common forms of these diseases are largely preventable or treatable. At MAH, we offer effective, budget-friendly solutions tailored to your pet’s oral health needs.


Advanced Digital X-rays: Since 2008, we’ve been proud to offer our clients and patients access to cutting-edge digital X-ray imaging technology. The speed and clarity of our advanced imaging machine are pivotal in delivering the finest diagnostic options for your beloved pet. Taking our radiology care to the next level, we offer the capability to send radiographs for consultation with a specialized radiologist returned within the hour.
