Important Questions to Ask a Burbank Vet About Pet Dental Cleanings
If you’re thinking about scheduling an appointment with a Burbank vet to have your pet’s teeth cleaned, start by making sure that your pet will be put under anesthesia during the appointment. Anesthesia helps to ensure that the veterinarian is able to do as thorough a job as possible with removing plaque from the teeth and below the gum line. Furthermore, when your pet is under anesthesia, you don’t have to worry about him or her being stressed out during the cleaning.
At Rainbow Vet Hospital, we recommend anesthesia for all pet dental cleanings. For optimal safety, we will perform any necessary pre-anesthesia blood work and testing prior to your pet’s dental care appointment, and your pet’s vital signs will be carefully monitored at all times before, during, and after his or her cleaning.
You should also ask your vet what types of dental issues may be discovered during a pet dental exam and cleaning. Our veterinary team can perform a comprehensive dental exam prior to your pet’s cleaning to look for signs of common pet dental issues, including tooth decay, abscesses, and gum disease. From there, we can make recommendations for specific dental treatments that may be performed at the same time as your pet’s cleaning, such as dental fillings, extractions, or a more thorough deep cleaning for pets with gum disease.
