Dental Scaling and Polishing:
Regular dental care for both cats and dogs has been shown to extend their life by two to five years. That is because, like humans, dog and cat teeth and gums are susceptible to oral diseases such as gingivitis and periodontal disease. In fact, dental problems are some of the most common problems vets encounter in pets; and the American Veterinary Dental Society reports that an astounding seventy percent of cats and an even higher eighty percent of dogs show signs of oral disease by age three.
Regularly scheduled complete dental scaling and polishing can help reduce the risk of oral disease for your pet. Bad breath, drooling, reluctance to eat hard foods, and red, inflamed or bleeding gums can are all signs of dental problems and can be treated and even totally avoided with dental care.
Dental scaling and teeth polishing is done under anesthesia with close monitoring. Fluoride is administered to your pet's teeth at the end. Your pet will usually be awake within 30 minutes after the procedure. One of the benefits of a mobile veterinary clinic is that after the procedure, your pet can wake-up comfortable in the quiet and safety of your home.
