Gainesville pet owners - Save 10% on pet dental cleanings in October!
Besides BAD BREATH, pet dental disease:
Releases bacteria into the bloodstream
Increases risk for heart, liver and kidney disease
Can cause severe pain and problems for your pet
Pets need regular dental cleanings to increase quality and length of life and:
Allows us to chart periodontal disease over time
Means less time under anesthesia
Reduces need for more advanced and expensive treatment in future
Can add up to 2-4 years to your pet's life
Dental disease is THE most common disease in dogs. Recent studies show that 85% of cats and 92% of dogs over age 3 have periodontal disease. Don't let your pet be a statistic; schedule their dental cleaning appointment today.
What Happens During My Pet's Dental Cleaning?
During a dental cleaning (sometimes called a prophylaxis), plaque and tartar are removed from a pet's teeth and the health of the entire mouth (tongue, gums, lips, and teeth) is assessed.
A thorough dental cleaning can be accomplished only while the pet is under general anesthesia. The anesthesia we use is safe for animals and your pet is monitored constantly while under anesthesia. Prior to anesthesia, blood tests are performed to help uncover any hidden illnesses.
Shores Animal Hospital offers digital dental radiographs (x-rays) which allows us to see under your pet’s gum line. With the majority of pet’s teeth and dental disease under the gums, using dental x-rays allows us to see the depth of the infection and impactions. If an extraction (tooth pulling) is needed, we can do so safely with minimal discomfort to your pet during oral surgery. Our veterinarians will administer pain medications and antibiotics if necessary and schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure the incisions have healed.
