Healthy Smiles Make for Healthy Pets
Your pet’s dental health is extremely important. Proper teeth cleaning not only prevents bad breath and toothaches, but it also helps reduce the likelihood of your pet developing serious oral infections or gum disease. If you’re interested in establishing a dental care plan to protect your furry friend’s teeth from decay and ensure your pet’s overall good health, the veterinarians and technicians at Walkertown Veterinary Hospital are happy to help.

What Happens During a Dental Checkup
Dental procedures, including extractions and cleanings, are performed under general anesthesia with the same safety precautions used for invasive surgery. During routine dentistries, the doctor examines the teeth for signs of abscess, decay, structural damage or instability. He/she then decides if any need to be removed and what further treatment needs to be performed. We use an ultrasonic scaler and a high-speed veterinary polisher to remove the plaque and tartar.
