Untreated or ineffectively treated dental disease can rob your pet of years of quality life. That’s why it is so important that your pet receives regular, high quality dental care. We offer many preventative dental products over the counter such as pet tooth brushes, toothpaste, dental rinses and dental chew treats designed to break down tartar. These products may help prolong the time in between necessary dental cleanings.
Union Veterinary Clinic performs dental cleanings and tooth extractions Monday – Friday. This service can be scheduled by our front desk staff. Schedule your dental surgery 1 week in advance to receive the day of the week you desire as availability is limited. Dental cleanings are anesthetized procedures and all pets must be fasted since 8pm the night before. Older pets are recommended to have blood work done shortly before this procedure to ensure that anesthesia is a safe option for them. We can do these blood tests on the same day as the scheduled dental, but the procedure will be cancelled if the results are not favorable for anesthesia.
Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, tooth extractions, x-rays and oral surgery. Ask your veterinarian during your annual exam to see if a routine dental cleaning is recommended for your pet.
Please call our front desk staff if you have any questions or concerns about estimates, bloodwork, and scheduling. They will be happy to assist you.
