Pet Dental Care
Dental care is an important aspect of overall health in our pets and we make it a priority at MobileCare Veterinary Clinic. Dental calculus can quickly lead to gingivitis, infection, and loose or abscessed teeth, so we evaluate the oral cavity with every physical examination. Often, your pet’s bad breath will be an early indicator of dental disease, so be aware of that and help us identify it in the early, more easily managed stages.
In the early stages of plaque and calculus buildup, brushing can be advantageous, but oftentimes a comprehensive dental cleaning under anesthesia will be required. This allows a complete cleaning, evaluation, and any necessary extractions to be performed. As with all of our anesthetic procedures, your pet’s safety is of paramount importance, so all appropriate monitoring will be in place throughout the process.
