Pet Dental Cleanings & Prophylaxis

The long-term health of your pet depends on regular and preventive dental care. Poor oral health in pets can result in periodontal disease, which frequently causes problems with the heart, lungs, and kidneys. In addition to a wide range of dental procedures for animals, including dental examinations, tooth extractions, and oral surgery, Jenks Veterinary Hospital also advises maintaining your pet’s teeth at home.

Our veterinarians perform essential oral exams on all patients during their comprehensive physical exams. This exam is critical for young animals, such as puppies and kittens, as it allows us to detect any problems related to their deciduous (baby) teeth, missing or extra teeth, swelling, and overall oral development. On the other hand, senior pets are evaluated for more specific issues, such as developmental anomalies, the accumulation of plaque and tartar, periodontal disease, and oral tumors. By performing these routine exams, we can catch potential issues early on and provide the necessary treatment to ensure our animal patients maintain optimal oral health.

Dental Care Tips for Dogs and Cats:

  • Schedule a dental oral exam for your dog or cat every year
  • Schedule regular dental cleanings as recommended by your veterinarian
  • Brush your pet’s teeth daily, or if every other day, give your pet a dental hygiene chew
  • Serve dog or cat food and treats that control tartar and plaque and promote good dental health
