About Pet Dental Cleaning
Getting your pet to the veterinarian for dental cleanings allows our vets Dr. Jennifer Corwin and Dr. Emily Weier to do a comprehensive oral exam. They can check for visual indicators of cancerous growths, traumatic injuries, open wounds, and infected gums. From here, a dental cleaning allows our vets to remove any tartar, bacteria, and debris that may be found in your pet’s mouth.
This is super beneficial in helping keep the overall level of bacteria down in an animal’s body. This is important when you have pets that suffer an oral injury. If they have a lot of bad bacteria or germs, this can get into the wound leading to serious conditions including sepsis, which is fatal. By maintaining good dental hygiene through regular pet dental cleaning, you are able to reduce such health risks.
What to Expect during Dental Cleanings
The first step will be to put your pet under general anesthesia. This reduces the risk of injury to your pet or to our technicians and vets as we carry out the dental cleaning. After we do a visual exam of your pet’s mouth and gums, we will perform a digital x-ray if needed. This is to review for any underlying damage or concerns with gum and tooth development and alignment. From there we provide recommendations for any additional dental care or oral treatments that might be needed for the health of your pet.
