Comprehensive CareFor All Your Pet’s Dental Needs

dog getting dental careGood oral health is essential to your pet’s comfort, nutrition, and overall good health. At Milton Animal Hospital, we provide thorough dental care for cats and dogs. Every dental procedure involves multiple steps to ensure your pet’s safety and comfort, and is monitored by our experienced veterinarians and staff.

Prior to the procedure

Preparation for your pet’s dental procedure is important in ensuring your pet’s comfort and safety. Before all dental care, we perform pre-anesthetic bloodwork and administer customized anesthesia.

During the procedure

Our dental procedures are comprehensive. While your animal companion is under anesthesia, we perform the following:

  • Full-mouth dental x-rays, which produce highly detailed images of your pet’s teeth and jaw
  • Thorough dental cleaning, including ultrasonic scaling and polishing of each tooth
  • Extractions or tooth preservation measures if needed
  • Oral surgery if needed, such as removal of foreign bodies or repairing of jaw fractures and dislocations

After the procedure

We provide medication as needed and offer recommendations to help you maintain a regular oral hygiene regimen at home. Our knowledgeable staff may also recommend beneficial dental products, such as toothbrushes, toothpastes, oral rinses, dental diets, and medicated dental chews which are available from our in-house pharmacy.

Professional people work here. From the receptionist to the vet techs to the vet, they were all on top of things. They made my two appointments smooth and quick. They were thorough in answering any questions I had and had great communication throughout, even after the visit when I had to come back and pick up therapy dog health paperwork for my two dogs. I’ve lived in MI, CA, SC and down near Perdido area but Milton Animal Hospital is definitely one of the more pleasant vets I’ve been to.  — Tyler S. & Vanessa Y.
