Studies show that 60-80% of pets over the age of 3 have periodontal disease and need dental care. Is yours one of them?
- Your pet may be in pain – sometimes severe – due to broken or diseased teeth and gums and you may not realize it.
- Eating becomes more difficult even painful for your pet if teeth are broken or gums infected.
- Your pet’s immune system can be compromised by infections in the mouth.
- Bacteria in the mouth can spread to other organs and lead to even more serious infections.
Our Pet Dental Cleanings
- Ultrasonic scaling and polishing to remove plaque and heavy calculus from above and below the gum line, and to create a smooth surface more resistant to future plaque buildup.
- Fluoride treatment to strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity.
- OraVet sealant application to significantly reduce plaque and tarter formation and to prevent bacteria from attaching to the teeth.
- Extraction of diseased or broken teeth preformed only upon doctor recommendation.
Every month we see pets with teeth so bad that they’re causing constant pain to the poor animals…and most of the owners don’t even know it.
Our Pet Dental Charges and Fees
Animals don’t react the way humans do to pain. Usually they suffer in silence unless they’re physically unable to hide it.
That’s why we believe so strongly in the importance of dental care for your pets. Unlike other clinics, we don’t just discount our dental fees for one month a year… but instead we charge less for our dental exams, cleanings and more all year long, every year. Plus, in February we also offer 10% OFF all of our dental products.
We encourage you to call us today at 402-884-3383 for an appointment and help ensure a long life for your furry family member.
Remember… Proper dental health care can extend your pet’s life by 3-5 years!
For Your Pet’s Safety, We Take Precautions Others Don’t
Other clinics offer pet dentistry but not all of them take the extra precautions we do to ensure the safety of your pet.
- Pre-anesthetic exam
- Pre-surgical blood work
- IV fluids to help support oxygen delivery to your pets vital organs while under anesthesia
- Surgical monitoring (blood pressure, oxygen, heart rate, respiratory rate, electrocardiogram)
- Heat support
- A complimentary nail trim is also included
- Surgical antibiotic injection
- Surgical pain management injection
- Hospitalization/surgical recovery. Following surgery your pet will receive supportive care and a warm bed to ensure a comfortable recovery. When your dog is awake, he/she will be taken outside for a brief walk to help further metabolize the anesthesia.
- Post-operative pain management
- Go-home pain medications & antibiotics (if needed)
Tooth Extractions & Our Digital Dental Radiography
Many animals have diseased teeth from periodontal disease or from enamel erosions. These teeth are painful and should be extracted. While your pet is under anesthesia, all teeth and gums will be evaluated for evidence of disease and/or injury.
To assist in our assessment and treatment decisions, we utilize Digital Dental Radiography, a technology and capability not all Omaha veterinarians offer.
Here’s how you can help your pet before and after a dental procedure.
