Pet Dental Care

Your pet's dental health is extremely important! Veterinary dental care is about more than just preventing "doggy breath."  Regular dental care can help prevent serious diseases and infections. Routine dental cleanings are a vital part of your pet's preventive health care plan.

What Happens During A Cleaning

Your pet's dental cleaning is far different than the same procedure you undergo each year at your dentist's office. Anesthesia is required to keep your pet safe and still during the cleaning. We perform a thorough physical exam and a series of blood tests to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for this procedure. These tests also help us develop an anesthetic protocol that is specific for your pet.

Once anesthesia is administered, the cleaning begins. We use modern and safe ultrasonic equipment to clean each tooth thoroughly, both above and below the gum line. Our specially trained dental technicians polish you pet's teeth, which creates a smooth, lustrous surface that is more resistant to plaque build-up. Finally, a fluoride treatment is used to help strengthen the enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
