Cat & Dog Teeth Cleaning in Warrick County Ongoing dental care is one of the most important aspects of your pet’s physical health care. At Warrick Veterinary Clinic, we have special training and interest in oral health, and we recommend routine cat and dog teeth cleaning to ensure that your pet’s mouth remains healthy and clean. Preventing tooth and gum disease (oral disease), in turn, helps to minimize incidents of heart, liver, and kidney disease. To provide your pet with the best possible dental care, we have developed a special dental staging program that involves diagnosing (including imaging), scaling, polishing, and treating teeth. With this program, your pet’s anesthetic episodes can be reduced, tartar and bacteria can be removed, and system antibiotic use can be decreased. You can learn more about our two-stage program in the next section. You can also give us a call in Boonville at (812) 897-4855 or in Newburgh at (812) 853-6041. Dental Staging Program When your pet comes in for a complete professional dental cleaning, you can expect the most thorough care for them. Our two-stage dental program allows us to perform a full analysis of the mouth, which then allows us to perform the most effective cleaning and treatment. The program includes: Stage 1: Diagnostics, Scaling, and Polishing Pre-anesthetic bloodwork (Optional, but recommended. Not included in Stage 1 price) Anesthetized oral exam with charting, full mouth x-rays, and dental cleaning (fasting required) Antibiotic gel applied to save teeth (Clindoral) Oral biopsy, if warranted Discharge appointment Stage 2: Oral Treatment Oral surgeries (fasting required) Bone grafts Oral restorations If you’d like to learn more about oral disease, including the signs and how to prevent it, or about our dental staging program, please view the following What Is Oral Disease handout.
