Ever wondered what exactly is a dental cleaning for your pet?
We will give you a brief rundown on what it entails and why your pet needs one.
If you notice any of these things with your pet, please bring him or her in for a dental cleaning:
- bad breath
- plaque buildup
- discolored teeth
- swollen gums
When your pet comes in for a dental cleaning he or she will be anesthetized first. This is because your pet doesn’t understand what is being done and will try to get away, move abruptly or could even bite. If your dog or cat needs dental X-rays, having him or her anesthetized also helps get the best X-ray picture possible.
If your dog or cat is already in good condition and is just getting a regular dental cleaning, it is a quick deep cleaning procedure. If your pet’s teeth are in need of longer deep cleaning, and in some cases even being pulled, understandably the procedure will take a little longer.
There is always risk with using anesthesia; however, getting a dental cleaning is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. Your pet will be able to go home the same day. He or she may be a little groggy the rest of the day.
