Our Clinic provides the finest in dental care and oral health for your pets. The services we provide include oral examinations with each annual health check, consultations on home care for maintaining the oral health of your dog or cat, providing dental health diets and products to help you care for your pet's teeth and gums at home, and a range of in-clinic treatments and surgeries to restore oral health. This latter includes a thorough cleaning and polishing of all teeth, whole mouth dental x-rays (radiography), a thorough oral examination by a doctor, and an application of a sealer to the teeth and gums. All of these procedures require general anesthesia, which can be concerning for pet owners but is necessary to do an adequate job. We provide the safest care for our dental patients by performing pre-anesthesia blood tests, using the safest anesthesia drugs available, monitoring 7 important vital signs of your pet during the entire procedure, administering IV fluids, using a warm air temperature maintenance system, and monitoring recovery. If extractions (pulling teeth) are needed, the doctor will discuss this with you, and the techniques are performed professionally and with pain relieving medications administered and sent home along with a complete report of all procedures completed. To maintain good dental health, brushing the teeth is the proven best method. There are gels to apply to the teeth and gums weekly such as Healthy Mouth and OraVet. Dental chews can also be helpful, with the new OraVet chews being a good addition to our oral care product line. Finally, Healthy Mouth drinking water additive controls disease-causing plaque and tartar. Our knowledgable staff would be pleased to advise you in choosing the best products to help you keep your pet's teeth and gums healthy.
