Maintaining your pets’ oral health is important to their overall well-being. Lack of dental care can lead to other systemic diseases, such as heart disease and kidney disease. Your pet will receive a full oral exam by our licensed veterinarian, and a dental plan will be tailored to their specific needs. For some patients a dental cleaning or advanced care may be necessary. In order to perform these procedures general anesthesia is required. All patients will have individual anesthetic protocols created for the dental prophylaxis and therapeutics necessary for optimal post operative care.
All patients will be required to have a complete physical examination performed prior to scheduling a dental prophylaxis, in order to determine necessary pre-operative diagnostics. Placing an intravenous (IV) catheter and maintaining your pet on intravenous fluids during a dental procedure is also always performed.
