Complete health care for your pet includes healthy teeth. Let us help you provide your pet with dental care by scheduling a comprehensive oral exam and teeth cleaning. Our trained staff will chart your pet’s teeth and dental problems and use ultrasonic dental equipment and polishing to give your pet a healthy, fresh smile.
AVAILABILITY & APPOINTMENTS
If you think your pet needs dental care, please contact Southwood to make an appointment. Dental cleanings are scheduled Monday – Friday mornings. Dogs and cats are monitored and placed under general anesthesia for the procedure. We offer pre-anesthetic blood chemistries before the cleaning, and your veterinarian may recommend antibiotics or pain medication for your pet’s health and comfort depending on findings during the procedure*. We can call or text you with any abnormal findings before the procedure is started. Pets can usually go home the same day.
*Laboratory test such as blood chemistries, and medications available at an additional charge.
