Pet Dental Cleanings in Jackson, TN
At University Parkway Animal Hospital, our veterinarian is proud to offer pet dental cleanings in Jackson TN. If it's been more than a year since your pet's last dental cleaning, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment with our office. In addition to routine dental cleanings, we also offer a wide range of additional dental and oral care service, such as cavity fillings, extractions and more.
The Importance of Pet Dental Health
Why is your pet's dental health so important, anyway? For starters, your pet's dental health is closely linked to your pet's overall health and wellness, so if your pet has dental and oral health issues, there's a good chance he or she also has other underlying health problems. This is especially true if your pet has persistent bad breath.
Some of the more common pet dental health issues we see in our office include not just tooth decay (which can be painful for your pet and lead to dangerous infections known as abscesses), but cracked teeth, chipped teeth, and even gum disease.
By bringing your pet in for routine dental exams and cleanings, you can drastically reduce your pet's chances of developing these dental and oral health issues.
What to Expect From Your Pet's Dental Appointment
At our office, we provide pet dental cleanings under general anesthesia. This allows us to ensure your pet is fully sedated and comfortable so that our veterinary team can perform the most thorough cleaning possible not just of the surfaces of your pet's teeth, but below the gum line as well. Ultimately, this allows us to provide the most thorough cleaning. Before your pet is placed under anesthesia, we will always run necessary blood work to ensure safe administering of anesthesia—and your pet will be carefully monitored both during and after the cleaning.
Schedule Pet Dental Cleanings with Our Jackson Vet
We recommend that pet owners schedule pet dental cleanings with our Jackson vet at least once a year (February is a good time since it's also National Pet Dental Health Awareness Month), so give University Parkway Animal Hospital a call at (731) 661-0711 to book one today.
