Feline Specialties offers a full dental examination and prophylaxis (cleaning). Under gentle gas anesthesia, the mouth, teeth and gums are examined, scaled (tartar and plaque removed), cleaned and polished. Any broken or badly infected/decayed teeth are extracted by our veterinarians. A disinfectant gel is massaged gently into the gums to help prevent gingivitis. Pain control medications are used, if necessary. Most dental procedures are performed on an outpatient basis.
Having this procedure done is important in helping your cat maintain a healthy life, no matter which cat clinic you attend.
