Pet Dentistry in Matthews
Did you know that one of the most common diseases seen in pets is dental disease? In fact, more than 50% of all dogs and cats have some form of gum disease by just 3 years of age. Gum disease, in its most advanced stage, can eventually affect the internal organs. The good news is that it can be prevented with annual exams and dental cleanings (as needed). Caring Hearts Animal Hospital believes that a healthy mouth is the cornerstone to your pet’s wellness, and our dental services are designed to keep your pet’s mouth healthy for a lifetime.
About Our Dental Services
With our preventive and advanced pet dental care services, we can keep your canine or feline companion smiling pretty for years to come. Our facility is equipped with cutting-edge equipment to examine, clean, and polish teeth and help prevent the buildup of plaque and bacteria. Our team is also experienced in performing a number of advanced dental procedures, such as extractions and oral surgery, to help treat and manage existing oral health problems.
All pet owners are required to fill out a Dental Prophylaxis Admitting Form before we can treat their pets. For the safety of our patients, we perform all dental procedures under general anesthesia and, in some cases, require pre-anesthetic blood work. This allows us to ensure that your pet is healthy enough for the procedure. We also use advanced monitoring equipment to monitor our patients’ vitals before, during, and after each dental procedure.
