Dental Care Services for Pets

Dental practices that keep your pet’s teeth clean and improve their overall health.

At Cochrane Animal Clinic, we are experts at providing dental services to our patients. Our state-of-the-art dental equipment includes digital X-ray, an ultrasonic scaler, as well as a high-speed dental drill and polisher. Whether your cat or dog requires a routine cleaning to help improve bad breath, or to help eliminate the pain of a fractured, abscessed, or decayed tooth, you can be assured they will have a comfortable experience with us.

What are signs of poor dental health in cats and dogs?

Signs of dental disease will reveal themselves if proper dental hygiene isn't practiced. Just like humans, your pet's teeth should be brushed regularly and professionally cleaned at least once each year. When dental health isn't prioritized in cats and dogs, you will notice the following:

  1. Bad breath
  2. Drooling excessively
  3. Bloody, swollen, or inflamed gums
  4. Yellow or brown buildup on and around their teeth
  5. Loose tooth
  6. Chewing on one side
  7. Loss of appetite
  8. Broken tooth

If you have noticed these signs in your pet, it's time for their mouth to be examined by a professional. Getting help sooner than later can save your pet's teeth, and prevent further infections and unnecessary pain. To schedule a dental appointment for your cat or dog, feel free to call us at 403-932-5875.

Are dental cleanings painful?

All of our dental procedures are performed under anesthesia. Nobody likes going to the dentist, but with our wide range of safe sedation and anesthetic agents, we can ensure that your pet will be pain-free, stress-free, and will wake with no memory of the experience. Having your pet sleep quietly through the dental procedure also ensures that our veterinarians can be extremely precise and detailed while they work. Pain medication is always provided for our patients who have undergone extractions. Not only do we freeze their mouth prior to the procedure, but they are also sent home with the appropriate medications to ensure they heal in comfort.
