Predental Exam for Pets

We understand that every pet is different, with individual personalities, needs, and preferences. That's why we perform a thorough and gentle predental exam to determine what your furry friend needs and how to boost their oral health. We believe that you know your cat or dog best, so we take the time to ask you questions about their behaviors and any changes you have noticed that may indicate specific issues. Our team carefully examines your pet from nose to tail, and we run bloodwork on pets over five years old to determine if they are healthy enough for anesthesia.

Dental Care for Cats and Dogs

Pets, just like people, need dental care to maintain their overall health. That's why we provide the diverse range of treatments your pet needs, so they can enjoy consistent, compassionate care under one roof from a team they know. We love animals, and we are committed to helping your furry friend enjoy optimal oral health.

Our team cares about your pet's specific needs, and we want to help them feel calm and comfortable during their appointment. On the day of your cat or dog's dental cleaning, we invite you to drop them off in the morning, and our friendly team will help them settle in so they feel calm and welcome. We perform a thorough cleaning of their teeth and check their dental structures for any problems like periodontal disease or decay. If we discover a broken or damaged tooth that compromises your pet's health, we perform extractions to protect your pet's oral health. If your pet has more serious dental problems, we work with a trusted oral surgeon who can see to their needs.

Signs of Dental Problems in Pets

Your cat or dog needs to have their dental structures checked regularly because their health and quality of life are directly impacted by the integrity of their oral health. Our friendly dentist for dogs and cats provides the treatments your pet needs to share a healthy smile. However, there are times when your pet may exhibit symptoms that they have a dental problem between annual cleanings. If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact our office, and we'll schedule an appointment for your furry friend:

  • Persistent bad breath
  • Dark or grey tooth
  • Bleeding gums
  • Broken tooth
  • Abscess on gums
  • Missing tooth
  • Excessive drooling

The symptoms directly related to your pet's teeth may seem straightforward, but if you notice a change in behavior, such as irritability or change in appetite, call our team. Changes in behavior or eating habits may also indicate an oral health problem like a cavity or an infection.
