Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Yet all too often, dental diseases cause our pets to suffer in silence due to significant pain and infection. Dental diseases may lead to adverse health consequences with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and can negatively affect the overall well-being of your pet.
Dr. Curt Ritchie is the leading authority on canine and feline dental care, prevention, and oral surgery in the Baton Rouge Metropolitan area. In fact, Dr. Ritchie is the only Board Certified Veterinary Dentist residing in the state of Louisiana. He taught veterinary dentistry at the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine from 2011 - Spring 2022. Veterinary hospitals all over the state of Louisiana, and surrounding states, refer their dental and oral surgery patients to him for their care. Dr. Ritchie and his staff help patients everyday with dental care providing everything from the most basic services and preventative care to very advanced, complex oral surgeries. Periodontal disease is the most common disease in dogs and cats. Unfortunately, it is not the only problem that can occur in their mouth. Dr. Ritchie also routinely performs root canals, crowns, jaw fracture repair, oral cancer surgery/treatments and orthodontics, juvenile dentistry, periodontics, and advanced oral surgery.
