Our veterinarians provide high quality veterinary dental services including routine cleaning and polishing (dental prophylaxis), digital dental x-rays, and a wide variety of treatment options to manage all oral disease conditions.
When dental problems and oral diseases are diagnosed, sometimes a surgical procedure may be necessary. Countryside Veterinary Hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art oral surgical equipment and the latest technology to provide your pet with a safe and thorough dental procedure.
Pet Dental Care
Routine and preventive dental care is vital to your pet’s long term health. Pets with poor oral hygiene can develop periodontal disease, which can often lead to heart, lung, and kidney disease. Countryside Veterinary Hospital offers a full range of dental services for cats and dogs including dental examinations, dental extractions, root canals and oral surgery as well as home care instructions for keeping your dog's or cat's teeth clean and healthy.
Routine Pet Dental Examinations
Our veterinarians perform basic oral exams on all our patients during their comprehensive physical exam. Puppies and kittens will be examined to detect any problems related to the deciduous (baby) teeth, missing or extra teeth, swellings, and oral development. Adult and Senior pets will be evaluated for developmental anomalies, the accumulation of plaque and tartar, periodontal disease, and oral tumors.
