Dental Care For Cats & Dogs

When it comes to oral health for your pet, prevention is key. Our doctors recommend an annual, anesthetized, comprehensive dental prophylaxis! Every patient who undergoes a dental procedure at our hospital has a team of staff members consisting of a dedicated anesthetist, trained dental hygienist and your pet’s veterinarian. Some clients are not used to this high standard of treatment, but this is OUR standard of care for your pet!

Your pet’s dental procedure at Pine Creek Vet includes our 11 steps as outlined below and we encourage you to ask us for the 11 step dental handout for more information on each of these steps.

Providing Comfort for Your Pet

Since your pet will be under anesthesia during their dental procedure, our dedicated anesthetist will constantly monitor your pet’s vital signs using our state of the art equipment. Comfort is also key! Your pet is wrapped in blankets and warming pads to keep them warm and snug throughout the procedure.

Full Mouth Digital Dental X-Rays

Providing our patients with the best animal dental care requires getting to the “root of matters”. Full mouth dental x-rays are the most important diagnostic tool veterinarians use to fully evaluate your pet’s oral health. Imaging the root structure and the surrounding bone tissue enables the doctors to stage your pet’s periodontal disease and plan appropriate therapy while your pet is anesthetized. We encourage you to experience the Pine Creek Vet 11 step dental procedure!
