Why is dentistry important?
Studies have routinely shown that dental problems are present in over 80% of dogs 2 years of age and older and 68% of cats over 3 years of age. However, some pets show signs even earlier (especially small breed dogs and puppies).
Why choose West Towne Veterinary Center?
At West Towne Veterinary Center we practice comprehensive dentistry for pets as part of our core prevention philosophy.
Yearly anesthetized dental exams, cleanings and dental radiographs (x-rays) are the best way to accomplish this and is the recommendation of the AAHA Dental Guidelines based on information provided by board-certified veterinary dentists. View our 12-step comprehensive dental cleaning protocol.
We will discuss anesthetic safety, pain relief and exam findings to ensure that we can together make the appropriate decisions regarding your pet’s dental health. We offer all options to try and save the affected teeth if possible.
We will provide you with a practical dental home care plan that is tailored to your family and with a goal of extending the time between dental visits. We offer a complimentary follow-up consultation 2 weeks after your pet’s teeth cleaning to ensure the home care plan is effective for everyone.
