Caring for the Oral Health of Lethbridge Dogs & Cats

Routine dental care can help to preserve your pet's oral health, yet preventive dental care is often neglected. Lack of attention to your dog or cat's oral health can result in painful dental issues and periodontal disease.

At our Lethbridge veterinary hospital, we offer a comprehensive range of dental care services for our four-legged patients. Our services include routine care, such as dental exams, teeth cleanings, and polishing, as well as dental X-rays and surgeries including as jaw fracture repair, tooth extraction, and gum disease treatment.

We also provide dental health guidance to pet owners, giving them the vital information they need to care for their companion's teeth between appointments.

Teeth Cleaning & Examinations

Annual dental exams allow us to detect the earliest signs of oral health problems and provide prompt treatment to help prevent your companion from experiencing chronic pain or discomfort.

Regular dental cleaning for our furry friends works just like our own cleanings. The veterinarian can clean away built-up plaque and tartar to help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

Dental Surgery for Dogs & Cats

Although we strongly believe that prevention is better than a cure, we recognize that preventive efforts are not always 100% successful. When required, our Lethbridge veterinarians perform dental surgery to help restore good oral health to our patients.

Our team understands that it can be overwhelming to learn that your pet requires dental surgery. We will do all we can to make this process as stress-free as possible, for you and your cherished pet.

Your dog or cat will be provided with anesthesia before their dental surgery to ensure they are comfortable and do not experience any pain.

We will take the time to explain each step of the process to you in detail before the procedure, including preparation and post-operative care requirements.
