Your veterinarian may advise at-home dental health care procedures in the early stages of dental illness, such as tooth brushing, dental diets, dental treats, and rinses. General anaesthesia is used when your pet needs specialised dental care. When dental care is required, your veterinarian will go over the steps in a COHAT (complete oral health assessment and treatment) plan with you.
Most frequently, this will entail spending a day at the veterinarian clinic planning and doing the operations, which could include:
- Lab Work Prior to Surgery
- IV implantation
- Generally Sedated
- Dental X-rays
- Cleaning and polishing your teeth
- Dental Graphs
- When Cited, Extracted
The veterinary team will go through any directions for post-dental medicines, specific food instructions, and when to start home dental care after discharge. Remembering to take care of your pet’s mouth will help him or her live a longer and happier life, and they will thank you for it.
