Did you know that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over age three have some form of oral disease?
I Don't Know What Condition My Pet's Teeth Are In.
What About Anesthesia?
Your pet must be anesthetized to have its teeth completely cleaned and should be in good health before receiving anesthesia. That is why we test your pet's blood before a dental procedure. The results of the test tell our doctors if your pets internal organs are functioning properly and can handle anesthesia. If your pet has had blood tests in the last 60 days let us know and we may be able to use those tests and save the cost of the preanesthetic blood tests.
What About Follow Up Care?
The best way to keep your pet's teeth clean and their breath bearable is to begin a maintenance program at home. The good news is there are a variety of products to help you do this from poultry flavored toothpaste to an easy water additive. What is the best home pet dental care? Ask any All Creatures staff member for the answer.
