Pet Dental Care

At Presidio Way Veterinary Hospital, we know that one of the most commonly overlooked areas of maintaining your pet’s good health is oral and dental care. Regular care of the teeth and gums can dramatically extend your pet’s life.

Part of Your Pet’s Regular Veterinary Exams

From the time we first see you dog or cat, your pet will be thoroughly checked every time they have a regular wellness exam for

  • Bite
  • Jaw injury
  • Abscesses
  • Fractured teeth
  • Damage to enamel
  • Tartar and calculus build up

Before beginning any dental treatments, we will make sure that your pet is well enough for general anesthesia.

Every time we perform any procedure for your pet’s oral health, including cleaning teeth, your pet will be placed under general anesthesia. A veterinarian and a technician will be with your pet at all times.

All dental procedures are performed with the highest quality care and state-of-the-art techniques. Monitoring for blood pressure, oxygen and CO2 levels, temperature, and heart rate is done throughout all procedures. We will provide heat to keep your pet warm and analgesic medication and nerve blocks are given to ensure your pet’s comfort.

Regular pet dental care can help you and your pet avoid unnecessary pain and discomfort from unhealthy dental conditions. Please call and make an appointment today.
