Dental care of dogs and cats is one of the most overlooked areas of your pet's overall health. Being proactive about your pet's dental care is extremely important as poor dental health doesn’t just affect the mouth. Poor dental health often leads to much more serious health issues that impact vital organs such as heart, lungs and kidneys. It's best to establish a regular pattern of dental care early in your pet's life so that you and your pet make dental care for your pet a life-long practice.
Dental Care at the Animal Hospitals at Bideawee
The Animal Hospitals at Bideawee provide pet lovers oral exams and dental cleanings in our locations in Manhattan and Westhampton. During a basic dental exam the pet remains awake and the veterinarian examines the pet for plaque, tartar and any dental abnormalities.
When your pet comes into the Animal Hospitals at Bideawee for a complete dental cleaning he/she will be given a short-lasting anesthetic. This anesthetic is needed so that the veterinarian can give your pet a complete and thorough exam and dental cleaning. A complete dental cleaning at the Animal Hospitals at Bideawee is a three step process that ensures that your pet receives a comprehensive dental cleaning:
Pre Op blood work
