Dental disease can cause tooth loss, pain during chewing and also lead to much more serious disease. At your pets annual exam the doctor will check the teeth and tell you if it is time to schedule a cleaning. We schedule cleanings Monday through Friday, and you will be asked to drop off at 8 am and pick up between 5-6pm. If your pet is over 7 years old the doctor will recommend doing blood work ahead of time and to administer IV fluids during the procedure.
How We Clean Your Pets Teeth
When your pet is dropped off for their dental cleaning they are taken to our treatment area where they are examined and sedated. The doctor usually begins by evaluating your pets teeth, gums, tongue and throat.
