Your companion’s mouth is a very important part of their overall health. At your annual exam the veterinarian will examine their dental health and discuss any at home dental care options. Sometimes preventative measures at home are not enough and a professional cleaning is needed. A dental cleaning is done while your companion is under anesthesia. This allows our very skilled technicians to clean deep under the gum line where periodontal disease lives.
We are also able to take digital radiographs of examine problems under the gum line and identify teeth that need to be extracted. Our technicians perform scaling and polishing while our veterinarians perform a full oral exam and any necessary oral surgery. Your companion is closely monitored and supported by intravenous fluids. Pre-surgical bloodwork is strongly recommended for all patients and is mandatory for patients over six years old. Because we feel so strongly about dental care we celebrate Dental Health Month and offer a 15% discount on the dental prophylaxis during the months of January and February.
