Did you know that oral health plays a big role in overall physical health? It’s true for both people and their pets, in fact!
Until much more recently, pet dentistry wasn’t a primary concern in the veterinary world. As the veterinary field has learned more and more about the devastating role poor dental hygiene can play in animals’ health, these procedures have become much more routine. At Shirley Veterinary Hospital we’ve always made dental health a priority for our patients, with a dedicated dental suite for all dental procedures.
Excellent Oral Health
Our veterinary team here is dedicated to excellent oral health. We use our annual physical examinations as an opportunity to assess each pet’s oral health, then we prescribe a dental cleaning when we believe it’s necessary. This helps you keep your pet feeling great without having extra or unnecessary treatments performed. Our goal is to find that perfect balance of quality care and affordability.
Careful Dental Cleanings
Our dental cleanings are performed with the same level of care and precision that we employ for major surgery. We always perform dental cleanings using anesthesia because these are safer and far more effective than non-anesthesia alternatives. An awake animal becomes stressed and anxious, preventing a complete and thorough cleaning. With this in mind, we utilize anesthesia monitoring tools just like we would in a surgical situation, ensuring your pet’s safety. This standard is in line with the American Veterinary Medical Association’s recommendations for the highest quality of care.
