Now Offering Dental Service
We are excited to begin offering affordable dental cleanings for cats and dogs!
Why Dental Cleaning is Important
Cornell Veterinary School has an excellent website on why dental cleanings for cats are so important: Feline Dental Health
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA), 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats show signs of oral disease by the age of 3.
- General anesthesia
- Oral exam
- Scaling off plaque and tartar
- Fluoride treatment
- Remove plaque and tartar
- Slow down the progression of dental disease
- Identify oral conditions such as tumors, lesions, furcations, etc.
- Uncover dental disease BELOW the gumline
- Allow for the safe removal of canines and other deeply rooted/firmly affixed teeth that should only be removed while employing dental radiographs
- Cats and small dogs: $115
- Dogs over 50 lbs. are an additional $30
- $15.00 per tooth extraction (maximum cost of $60.00 for all extractions)
- Antibiotics if needed are included
For the safety of the animal, pre-surgical bloodwork is required for dental patients 8 years and older. If you have not had a blood chemistry on your dog within 30 days before their scheduled cleaning, we will do it the day of their cleaning for $50.
We are offering this service to help owners and their pets keep up with regular oral hygiene at an affordable price, but under no circumstance is this to be considered a substitute for a “full dental”, which consists of radiographs, complicated extractions, measuring of periodontal pocketing, etc.”
We do not offer major extractions. The only teeth we extract are those that can easily and safely be removed without radiographs or risk of fracture. We are not an alternative to another vet telling you your pet needs multiple extractions–there’s a good reason for their higher price tag.
We offer dental cleanings and preventive care, we don’t offer treatment for conditions diagnosed by other veterinarians.
We cannot cure your cat’s stomatitis or resorptive lesions–that diagnosis requires treatment that includes diagnostics and radiographs.
We are more than happy to perform your pet’s dental cleaning and refer you back to your primary vet if we feel there are additional extractions that should be performed.
