Cat and Dog Dentist
At Pawsitive Wellness Veterinary Care, we offer full-service veterinary care focusing on preventative care and regular treatment designed to keep your pet healthy and full of life.
What Does Dog and Cat Dentistry Involve?
At Pawsitive Wellness Veterinary Care, all dental procedures are done under anesthesia. That process allows us to offer more complete exams and procedures without danger to the pet.
We offer a variety of dental care options, including:
Pet Basic Dental Exam and Cleaning
We begin by administering anesthesia. We check the teeth above and below the gum line during our basic exam. We look for tooth decay and other oral health issues. The oral exam gives us a complete picture of your pet’s oral health and can help us spot issues such as periodontal disease, inflammation of the gums, and problems that may arise with their teeth.
We also clean your pet’s teeth during the exam. We use specialized tools that work with the shape of dog and cat teeth. We can clean tartar and plaque above and below the gum line without damaging the teeth. Our practicing veterinary team has many years of experience in the dental care of dogs and cats.
Pet Dental Procedures
We offer a range of dental procedures that help to correct oral health problems. A veterinary dental procedure occurs under anesthesia.
Veterinary dentistry is an essential service that acts as a preventative form of medicine and treatment for emergencies and routine oral health problems that may arise due to age.
Pet Oral Health Education
Part of our service to pets and their owners is educating them on how to care for your pet’s mouth, gums, and teeth. We may recommend special diets to address dental issues or show you how to brush your pet’s teeth and care for their oral cavity. We also talk with you about toys and treats and how to use both effectively to help keep your pet’s teeth clean. We can show you how to quickly check their teeth for signs of foreign objects, such as bone fragments, and if teeth are cracked or broken. Oral health for pets is an essential part of prevention. A healthy pet lives longer and enjoys a higher quality of life.
Pet Nutritional Health Guidance
Part of dental health is nutritional health. We help our clients understand the nutritional needs of their pets. When pets have healthy food, they build healthy bodies, including teeth, gums, and soft tissue. Quality food also helps to reduce intestinal issues, which can have a secondary impact on oral health. Are you feeding your cat or dog the correct type of food? Are snacks and treats too high in sugar, fat, or salt? We have options for healthy foods that are still exciting for your pet.
