DENTAL CARE

DENTAL CARE

Your pet’s dental health is directly tied to their overall well-being. If you do not take proper care of your teeth, more serious – and expensive – health problems can result, beginning with periodontal disease.

At advanced stages, dental disease can significantly impact a pet’s quality of life, making eating difficult due to mouth pain. Plus, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and cause heart, liver, and kidney complications. Keeping up with the cleanliness of your pet’s mouth and their overall dental health can prevent years of discomfort, disease, and lost teeth.

At Upper East Side Animal Hospital, we take your pet’s teeth and gum health very seriously and know what’s required to keep your pet smiling for years to come. We are board-certified to perform the following:

  • Dental cleanings
  • Scaling and polishing
  • Extractions

We recommend that your pet have a thorough oral exam on an annual basis. At your pet’s appointment, one of our experienced veterinarians will evaluate the health of your pet’s teeth, jaw, and tooth roots. Since the roots of your pet’s teeth are under the gum line, a thorough evaluation and cleaning is normally performed under anesthesia. We include scaling and polishing in a typical dental cleaning because the removal of plaque and tartar is necessary to ensure your pet’s oral health.

Because we know just how crucial this aspect of pet health is to your animal companion’s quality of life, we’re happy to offer this standing special:

A complete dental cleaning, scaling, and polishing for the low price of $549! Price includes all necessary bloodwork and IV fluids. We’ll also continually monitory your pet’s blood pressure, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygen status, and temperature.
