According to the American Veterinary Dental Society, 80% of dogs and 70% of cats show signs of oral disease by age 3! This can lead to pain, bad breath, tooth loss, and potentially affect the heart, liver, and kidneys. That is why it is so important to make sure your pet receives regular check-ups and routine dental cleanings.
Just like your dental hygienist does for you, we hand-scale, ultrasonically scale, and polish your pet’s teeth. As with any patient undergoing anesthesia, we recommend pre-anesthetic bloodwork to identify any problems not detected during the physical examination, as well as intravenous fluid therapy. We have digital dental radiography, and can assess each tooth to determine if any extractions are needed. If applicable, your pet will go home with antibiotics and pain medication.
In addition to small animal dentistry, we also offer equine dentistry. We have haul-in facilities here, or we are happy to come to you.
