Proper dental care helps prevent many health problems as your pet ages. When early tartar buildup is diagnosed, we can offer preventative care such as a dental diet to prevent tartar buildup, a liquid wash that can be added to your dog’s drinking water that has an enzymatic action to help slow down tartar buildup, toothbrush, and toothpaste kits, and other products we carry or that can be found on our online store.
Tri-County Veterinary Service offers dental cleanings. This procedure is performed under general anesthesia to remove tartar and gingivitis. We also can remove any teeth that may be causing issues, such as not eating, bad breath, or painful swelling. Your dog will spend the day with us and go home with a better breath and a healthier mouth.
Most dental cleanings are performed on older dogs which can cause concern for many dog owners. We have the capability of running pre-operative blood work to ensure healthy liver and kidneys before your dog goes under general anesthetic. Our doctors and technicians follow strict protocols and monitor your pet’s vital signs constantly during and after surgery.
If you have any questions or concerns about dental cleanings or dental care, please feel free to reach out to us at any time.
