Canine & Feline dental prophy before & after
Many pets suffer in silence! Dental disease is one of the most over-looked problems in both dogs and cats. Pets cannot communicate their discomfort as we do and may show dental pain by changing eating habits or rubbing their mouths with paws or on the carpet or furniture. They may drool, "chatter", cry out, or flinch when touched around the gums or mouth areas. In addition to pain, periodontal disease can lead to bad breath, sore throats, heart disease, and various other internal organ issues.
Unlike people, cats and dogs must have general anesthesia for a proper dental scaling and evaluation. A complete health evaluation, including lab work is required prior to any dental procedure. An IV catheter and fluids are maintained during the dentistry. All patients are kept warm on a heated table and are monitored by our nursing team as well as electronic devices which monitor their breathing, temperature, heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen consumption.
A routine dental procedure involves scaling the tooth and polishing it to keep it shiny and prevent tartar build up. Many dentistries require x-rays or possibly extractions.
Keep your pet smiling! Have their teeth checked every 6 months!
