When is Pet Dental Surgery Needed?
Some pets are fortunate enough to not have dental issues that require surgery, however, many pets need dental surgery at some point. Your cat or dog’s teeth can encounter some of the same issues as human teeth, including breaks, chips, cracks, and abscesses. As a result, it’s essential to keep up with regular veterinary appointments, which can help our vets detect dental issues before surgery is needed. However, if your furry friend has an infection, a painful broken tooth, or dental issues that are making it hard to eat, or an abscess, it may need surgical dental care.
What to Expect During Pet Dental Surgery
Prior to your pet's surgery, our veterinarians will provide you with pre-care instructions. Your pet may need to fast prior to the procedure and we will administer anesthesia before surgery to keep them comfortable. As soon as the surgery is complete, a member of our care team will reach out to you to let you know how your pet is doing. We'll let you know when you can pick it up, as well as what aftercare instructions you'll need to follow to help its mouth heal after surgery.
