Pet Dental with our Dove Mountain Veterinarian
Of course, you know it’s important to go visit the dentist regularly, and it’s just as important for your dog or cat. Taking care of your pet’s oral health is an essential part of helping them stay healthy, and regular dog and cat teeth cleaning is a big part of that. Fortunately, or veterinarian in Marana is skilled at performing these types of procedures and can help address any dental issues that may arise over the course of your pet’s life.
Pet Dental Exam Basics
The first thing our veterinarian in Marana will do in the course of a dental exam for your pet is to perform a brief oral exam while the animal is awake. This gives the vet a general sense of the state of your pet’s teeth and gums, and it also helps us determine what is needed during a more comprehensive cleaning under anesthesia.
Before administering anesthesia to your pet to perform a more in-depth exam and cleaning, we’ll run some blood tests to make sure there are no underlying medical problems that could make anesthesia unsafe. Once your pet is under anesthesia, we’ll complete detailed oral exam, clean your pet’s teeth thoroughly, take x-rays, and perform any extractions or other procedures your pet needs.
Professional Cat and Dog Teeth Cleaning
This type of regular cat and dog teeth cleaning is beneficial to your pet in many ways. For instance, it helps ensure they’ll keep their full set of teeth healthy so that they can eat a normal, well-balanced diet. It’s also simply more comfortable, as decay or gum disease can cause pain, soreness and general discomfort.
Decay and infections in your pet’s mouth can also lead to more serious complications, and so visiting our veterinarian in Marana for routine dental checkups is the best way to help your pet avoid all of these potential complications.
