Park Vet Hospital & Urgent Care ’s veterinarians and staff can help you set up a dental care plan that will help prevent (decay) pain and infection and promote your pet’s continued health.
Veterinary Dental Checkups
When pets come to Park Vet Hospital & Urgent Care for a professional cleaning, under anesthesia, their teeth are examined and cleaned under anesthesia and all plaque buildup removed both above and below the gum line. At this time, we are also able to take digital X-rays to check for problems with missing or infected teeth decay or any signs of infection. Damaged or decaying Painful, diseased teeth can be attended to and any necessary extractions performed.
This kind of professional deep examination cleaning restores the condition of a pet’s mouth so that at-home care will be effective.
At-Home Pet Dental Care Just like people, pets need regular teeth brushing to keep plaque from building up and to promote good gum health. The staff and veterinarians at Park Vet Hospital & Urgent Care can help you work with your pet to make dental care a regular and accepted part of his or her daily routine.
In addition to pet toothbrushes, we have a selection of dental chew toys and treats that can greatly reduce plaque and improve the condition of gums and teeth. We also carry oral gels and products that can be used in your pet’s water to promote dental health.
