Pet Dental Cleaning Services
So what is involved in a professional cleaning?
First the veterinarian will want to perform pre-surgical blood work on your pet to make sure that he/she can metabolize the anesthetics used during the dental cleaning. This is especially true of older pets. Following is a list of procedures that your pet’s dental may include:
- Cleaning the teeth with ultrasonic and handheld scalers. All calculus is removed from above and below the gum line
- Polishing the teeth to remove microscopic scratches
- Inspecting and charting each tooth and the gum around it for disease
- Recording any abnormalities of the gum and teeth
- Extractions of any loose or diseased teeth
- Some pets will require antibiotics to be given at home before and/or after the dental
- The veterinarian will determine the best follow-up care and home dental program for your pet
Spaying and Neutering
Surgical altering can be performed at any age, but the health benefits are the greatest and the risks to your pet the smallest when done before reaching sexual maturity. Usually we perform these surgeries at six months of age, but are now performed routinely on younger animals. Surgery is usually well tolerated and recovery is generally quick.
Spaying or neutering your pet is an important part of your responsibility as a pet owner. It is a healthy, responsible action that will save lives, possibly your own pet’s. If your pet has not been altered, please discuss the procedure with the veterinarian.
We are available to assist in the diagnosis and management of dogs and cats with gastrointestinal disorders, hepatic or pancreatic diseases, liver or bladder diseases, upper and lower airway diseases (including nasal disease), endocrine and other metabolic disorders, and infectious diseases.
