We humans tend to rely on annual or semi-annual dental cleanings to keep our mouths healthy and fresh. Our pets also can benefit from periodic dental cleanings. Every annual exam includes a thorough oral exam, since the health of your pet’s mouth affects its entire body. Issues such as heart valve disease and kidney disease can be prevented by maintaining a healthy mouth. Regular cleanings can also decrease pain caused by gingivitis and periodontal disease, and can help save teeth before extractions are necessary. Our dentals include a blood work screening, an antibiotic injection, general anesthesia with vital monitoring, IV fluid therapy, dental scaling and polishing, and pain medication if appropriate. We also carry pet toothbrushes, pet toothpastes, and dental diets to care for your pet’s teeth.
