Dental Care for Your Pet

It is not possible to create an accurate estimate for dental procedures as extractions can not be determined until teeth are cleaned under an anesthetic. We offer two routes to better accommodate our clients:
- Anesthetic, cleaning, extractions without an estimate.
- Anesthetic, cleaning, determine extractions so that an estimate can be created and discussed the next day. To do the extractions would then require another anesthetic fee.
For your pet’s safety, it is not an option to call with an estimate while your pet is under anesthesia.
South County Animal Clinic believes very strongly that optimum patient care includes annual dental cleanings and quality pain management.
True or False?
A. FALSE. Regular dental cleanings along with regular tooth brushing will help keep your pet’s mouth healthy and avoid potentially deadly heart and kidney conditions. Routine cleanings help to avoid costly extractions.
Q. Cats don’t need dental care.
A. FALSE. Cats and small breed dogs often require more dental care than large breed dogs.
Q. Dentals are not worth the risk or expense for senior patients.
A. FALSE. South County Animal Clinic believes that pets of all ages should have a healthy, pain-free mouth. Geriatric surgeries and dentals are all given extra support at our hospital. Age alone shouldn’t force a pet to live in pain!
Q. By age 3 most pets have some degree of dental disease.
A. TRUE. By age 3 most pets have some tartar buildup. The extent of buildup will determine whether or not a dental cleaning is recommended. The sooner routine dental care is started, the healthier your pet will be and the less chance for a painful mouth.
