Dental Health Month: All About Your Pets Next Dental Check Up

Taking care of your pet’s dental health is crucial to their overall wellbeing. Just like humans, pets can suffer from dental issues that can lead to discomfort, pain, and even more serious health problems. At Companion Animal Health and Rehabilitation Center, our team of experienced veterinary professionals provides comprehensive dentistry services for pets of all ages and sizes. Here’s what you can expect during your pet’s dental checkup.

What To Expect At Your Pets Dental Check up

Complete Examination

The veterinarian will examine your pet’s mouth and teeth thoroughly. The examination will involve checking the teeth, gums, and mouth for any signs of dental issues such as cavities, tartar buildup, gingivitis, or periodontal disease. They will also look for any signs of pain or discomfort in your pet’s mouth.


After the examination, the vet will proceed to clean your pet’s teeth. This is a crucial aspect of the checkup as it helps remove plaque and tartar buildup that can cause dental issues in the future. Your pet’s teeth will be cleaned using specialized dental equipment such as a scalar or ultrasonic dental scaler.


In some cases, our veterinarians may need to take x-rays of your pet’s teeth to get a better look at any potential problems. These x-rays will help us to identify any issues that may not be visible to the naked eye.

Treatment Plan

If the vet detects any dental issues during the checkup, they will create a customized treatment plan for your pet. The plan may include medication, surgery, or a follow-up visit for additional cleaning.


The veterinarian may provide you with recommendations on how to maintain your pet’s dental hygiene at home. This may include regular brushing, dietary changes, and the use of dental chews.
