What is a Dental Prophy?
Your pet’s dental procedure is very similar to the one you receive from your dentist, with the exception that your pet will be anesthetized. The teeth are examined, X-rayed (if needed), cleaned, polished and then treated with a topical fluoride.
Does My Pet Need Pre-Anesthetic Testing?
Your pet’s appearance of health may be misleading, and because disorders of kidneys, liver and other internal organs are often not detectable without labwork, our doctors recommend pre-anesthetic blood testing before procedures to help minimize risks. If the results are normal, we can proceed with confidence.
