You brush your teeth twice daily and visit the dentist at least once a year, but does your pet have the same regimen? Clean teeth and a healthy mouth are imperative to pet wellness. Plaque and tartar build up on your pet’s teeth can lead to serious health issues.
Veterinary dental cleanings are very different for pets than they are for you. Because anesthesia is required to keep your pet still and comfortable during a cleaning, your pet undergoes a complete physical examination prior to the cleaning, in order to detect any complications that may occur from the use of anesthesia.
