Pet Dental Cleanings in Collierville

Your pet's dental and oral health is just as important as any other aspect of its physical health, which is why we're proud to offer a variety of dental services in our office, including pet dental cleanings in Collierville. We recommend cleanings as part of routine dental care for cats and dogs alike. With a dental cleaning, our veterinary professionals can take the time to remove any plaque and tartar buildup from your pet's teeth, including buildup that occurs around and underneath the gum line. Without regular cleanings, your pet could ultimately suffer from painful tooth decay or could even develop gum disease, which can result in permanent tooth loss and other unpleasant dental conditions.

Here in our office, our veterinary staff has the training, technology, and resources to provide a thorough dental cleaning to your pet as a means of promoting a healthy mouth and freshening breath!

Additional Dental Services

In addition to dental cleanings, we're also happy to offer tooth extractions. We typically will recommend extractions in cases where a tooth has become decayed to the point of needing to be removed, or in cases where progressive gum disease has otherwise compromised the tooth. All of our tooth extractions are done while your pet is under anesthesia, and we perform any necessary pre-anesthesia bloodwork to ensure that your pet is given the right amount. Our veterinary technicians will also carefully monitor your pet while under anesthesia to maximize safety.

At-Home Dental Care for Dogs and Cats

Of course, there are also steps you can take when it comes to providing dental care for dogs and cats in your household. In between professional dental cleanings, for example, take time to brush your pet's teeth whenever possible. Specially designed tooth brushes and formulated tooth pastes can be purchased for dogs and cats alike. If your pet is one of many who cannot tolerate having its teeth brushed, consider purchasing dental toys or treats so your pet can clean its own teeth without even realizing it! There are also flavor-less additives you can pour into your pet's water bowl to help promote fresh breath and healthier teeth, so we recommend purchasing this and using it for your own pet's dental health.
