Your pet’s dental health is a critical part of their overall health. Regular prophylactic cleanings help prevent painful conditions, tooth decay and infection later in life. If left untreated, periodontal diseases can lead to microscopic changes in the heart, liver and kidneys and can cause serious health problems and reduce the life span of your pet. Dental cleanings should be regularly scheduled and require general anesthesia. Our brand new anesthesia and dental equipment and gold standard anesthetic protocols using the safest and most up to date anesthetics allow peace of mind for your pets safe recovery and ability to go home the same day.
The current “Gold Standard” for pet dental care is:
- Twice yearly dental exams
- Annual dental cleaning
- Regular teeth brushing and at home care
Some ways to help you stay on top of your pet’s dental needs include:
- When you make your own dental appointment, make one for your pet
- After brushing your own teeth, brush your pets teeth
- Get the entire family involved. Pet dental health habits should be practiced as a family.
