Did you know that 80% of dogs over 3 years old have dental disease? Pet dental cleanings aren’t just preventative care. They’re also important to fight already existing dental disease.
Dental disease can cause lots of problems; from dental pain to more significant issues because of the bacteria inside your pet’s mouth.
We provide affordable dental care starting at $175!
Does Your Pet Need Dental Care?
The short answer is yes! However, the level of dental care your pet needs depends on the condition of their teeth.
Your pet might need a dental cleaning if they have:
- Stinky breath
- Difficulty eating
- Lower appetite than usual
- Yellow teeth
- Painful mouth
- Swelling/bleeding in their mouth.
Dentals are also more important for smaller breed dogs! This is because small breeds like chihuahuas don’t have enough “chewing power” to clean their teeth like bigger dogs do. However, this varies a lot from breed to breed – greyhounds for example can have many dental problems due to their narrow jaws – and we recommend consulting with your vet to figure out a good dental schedule.
Starting at about 3 years old, we recommend checking with a vet every year to review your pet’s dental condition.
What Our Pet Dental Cleanings Include
We provide low cost dental cleanings in Irving, TX. Our standard dental packages include:
- Dental scaling, polishing and flouride treatment
- Technician and electronic monitoring at all times
- Pre- and intra-op vet exam
- Pre/post op pain meds
We strongly recommend IV fluids ($39) for all dental cleanings. For older pets (and also pets with more advanced dental disease), we may require IV fluids.
Pets with more advanced dental disease may also require antibiotics before their dental cleaning. If we have never seen your pet before, we recommend scheduling a dental consult ($25), during which we can:
- Do a general wellness exam to check for any issues we need to consider before anesthesia;
- Create an estimate based off of pet’s dental condition;
- Answer questions about our dental cleaning procedures & your appointment;
- Complete any pre-op needed care (like vaccinations or heartworm tests);
- And prescribe pre-dental antibiotics or pain medication if necessary.
