What Happens During My Pet's Dental Cleaning?
During a dental cleaning (sometimes called a prophylaxis), plaque and tartar are removed from a pet's teeth and the health of the entire mouth (tongue, gums, lips, and teeth) is assessed.
A thorough dental cleaning can be accomplished only while the pet is under general anesthesia. The anesthesia we use is safe for animals and your pet is monitored constantly while under anesthesia. Prior to anesthesia, blood tests are performed to help uncover any hidden illnesses.
What Can I Do To Take Care of My Pet's Dental Health at Home?
Dry kibble is better at cleaning the teeth than the alternative canned foods, it is not the best way to prevent tartar build up. In addition, animals don’t chew as thoroughly as humans their instinct is to eat quickly, not to savor each bite.
Chewing on bones or hides can help to clean the teeth, but is still not as thorough as regular brushing. Regular brushing at home is the best way to consistently clean teeth. Pet toothbrushes, pastes, water additives and dental cleaning treats and other dental products can be purchased at Jones Veterinary Hospital or through our online pet pharmacy and store.
