NON-ANESTHETIC DENTISTRY FOR DOGS AND CATS
Most adult cats and dogs (over the age of 3) have some form of dental disease, which can significantly impact a pet’s overall health. Fortunately, this is entirely preventable, but early intervention is key! At Animal Medical Center we offer non-anesthetic dental cleanings through Veterinary Dental Service, an experienced provider of quality, non-anesthetic dental health care for pets. These services are provided the first Tuesday each month at our practice, and all cleanings are performed under the supervision of our veterinarians.
Keep in mind, not all animals qualify for anesthesia-free dentistry. Pets with advanced dental disease, loose or broken teeth, or extreme gingivitis are not candidates. Pets who become stressed or extremely anxious may not co-operate and would not be considered an ideal candidate. Also, pets must have a current physical exam on file and be up-to-date on required vaccines. Your veterinarian can examine your cat or dog and let you know whether non-anesthetic dental services are appropriate for your pet.
Animal Medical Center offers comprehensive dental care under general anesthesia for those pets who don’t qualify for non-anesthetic services and for those pets who occasionally require more intervention. In addition to thorough cleanings, we provide tooth extractions and other minor dental surgeries.
