Cat & Dog Teeth Cleaning in Duluth, GA

Did you know pets need routine oral care the same as we do? By maintaining at-home oral care and bringing your pet in for annual cat or dog teeth cleanings, you can easily prevent one of their most common medical conditions – dental disease. When plaque builds up on your pet’s teeth, it turns into hard tartar. This tartar carries bacteria that can get under your pet’s gum line and cause tooth decay, bone loss, and possibly even organ disease. At Tiger Tails Animal Hospital, we go to great lengths to ensure our patients’ oral health. Using state-of-the-art equipment and education on at-home care, we provide exceptional dental services to Duluth and surrounding areas. Call us today at (770) 817-9565.

How We Care
for Your Pet’s Teeth and Gums

When you schedule your pet’s dental cleaning with us, we always keep their safety in mind while we carefully assess their oral health. To thoroughly clean and diagnose any oral concerns, we place your pet under general anesthesia. As an accredited member of the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA), we adhere to strict safety guidelines. While sedated, your pet’s vital signs are constantly monitored. Furthermore, one of our technicians will be with your pet through every step of their dental procedure.
A little bit more about teeth cleanings for dogs and cats:

  • We thoroughly scale your pet’s teeth to remove stubborn tartar above and below the gum line.
  • We polish their teeth to a smooth, shiny surface to inhibit bacterial growth in the future.
  • We apply a fluoride treatment to help discourage future plaque formation.
  • Digital imaging can help us quickly diagnose tooth decay or the need for necessary extractions.

Taking Care of Your Pet’s Teeth at Home

Pets can be tricky when it comes to brushing their teeth. Still, the benefits of regular brushing far outweigh the inconvenience. If you can brush your pet’s teeth just a few times per week, you help decrease their chances of developing gum disease. Even better for them still is brushing their teeth daily. Some things to note about at-home oral care:

  • The routine of daily brushing gives your pet the chance to get used to it.
  • Start by attempting to do only small amounts of brushing at a time and reward them generously with a treat, preferably one endorsed by the Veterinary Oral Health Council (VOHC)
  • Oravet chews are one of our favorite oral care products. Come in to pick up a box today!
