Proper dental care is important for your pets overall health. Odor causing bacteria from gingivitis can also affect you pet's heart, liver and kidneys. Dental cleaning and polishing is not just for appearance! We have state of the art equipment for dental care. A pre-anesthetic exam and consultation will be performed on every patient prior to the procedure. Together with your veterinarian, you will determine the best treatment protocol for your pet and address any questions or concerns. Just like any anesthetic procedure, the veterinarians and surgical technicians at Countryside Animal Hospital make every effort to keep your pet safe and comfortable. Anesthetic protocols are carefully considered for each pet. Your pet's heart rate, blood oxygen level and EKG will be carefully monitored throughout the entire surgery and recovery. We use warmth support for every patient and temperature is monitored throughout the procedure. A dental cleaning includes scaling, polishing, and any necessary extractions. For out patients comfort, pain management medications will be administered if needed. In addition to dental cleanings, Countryside offers a wide variety of dental care treats and diets.
