Dentistry

Providing your pet with routine dental care is a standard of care allowing them to have a happy and healthy life. Dental care is more important than most owners realize. It's much more than bad breath. Dental tartar and periodontal disease can lead to heart disease and other serious issues. Each dental cleaning includes full mouth radiographs taken to ensure we get to the root of any issues and will help aid in complete extractions when needed.  

Dental cleanings are done under anesthesia with the same safety measures taken during other anesthesia procedures and surgeries.

Plaque and tartar build-up does not only come with a foul odor and dirty looking teeth, but it can also cause issues with other organs, especially the heart when bacteria travels from the mouth into the body. 

Certain breeds are pre-disposed to have dental issues, even with yearly cleanings. Make sure to have your pets’ teeth evaluated at least once a year for any issues that may arise. 

Dental cleanings are recommended yearly on most pets, some may require more than one cleaning per year.

Since all dentals are performed under general anesthesia, any pet that is over 7 years old, certain breeds, or has health issues will be required to have pre-anesthetic bloodwork and an EKG ran before the procedure.
