Professional Canine Dental Cleaning


You need to clean your dog’s teeth and stimulate his gums regularly throughout his life. However, even with the most diligent of care your dog will need periodic professional cleanings. These cleanings are done at your vet’s office under anesthesia. Your vet may need to extract decayed teeth and takeX-rays to determine your dog’s overall dental health. Your dog may need antibiotics before and after his dental cleaning. This helps with any underlying infections and reduces the risk of introducing bacteria into your dog’s bloodstream. You will receive full instructions on aftercare just like any other surgical procedure. In some cases, your dog may need pain medication and he may be limited to eating soft foods for a few days. The medication and anesthesia may cause digestive issues and diarrhea but soon your dog will be back to normal. For more information, contact your San Leandro, CA veterinarian.
