Dental care for your pet is just as important as it is for you. The bacteria in your pets' mouth can cause problems with their internal organs, such as their heart, kidneys, liver, and spleen. Keeping your pets teeth is a big part of keeping your pet healthy. Proper diet, treats and brushing are an important part of the care of your pets' teeth, however even with proper care a dental cleaning will be necessary.
A dental cleaning for your pet is essential done in the same manner as your teeth are done, however your pet will be under anesthesia. The teeth are scaled, polished and a fluoride treatment is applied. We do offer a sealent for your pets' teeth. We apply the first treatment at the end of the dental cleaning. There is also a take home kit in which you can apply to your pets' teeth. Proper care after a dental can prolong the time between dental cleanings.
Because the dental cleaning is done under anesthesia we would recommend some blood work, to help reduce certain risk factors. Some breeds, medical conditions or the pets age we would require blood work. We want to make sure we do what we can to ensure the safety of your pet.
