Periodontal disease is one of the biggest diseases affecting our pets today. By 3 years of age, 80% of dogs and cats will already have signs of periodontal disease! At Acadia Veterinary Hospital, we are fully equipped to take care of all your pet’s oral health needs. Please give us a call anytime to schedule a dental exam for your pet, it can make such a difference in their lives!
What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?
We offer a large selection of dental diets and treats, as well as water additives and toothpaste. We also offer demonstrations and tips to help you get started with brushing your dog or cat’s teeth. In addition, we perform a complete comprehensive oral examination and dental prophy (scale and polish) under general anesthesia. We are fully equipped with ultrasonic scaling, polishing and digital dental x-rays, which allows us to fully examine your pet’s teeth above and below the gumline.
How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?
Ideally, every animal should have their teeth brushed once a day, but even several times a week is better than nothing! Here at Acadia, we can give you tips on how to get started and make this a more enjoyable experience for your pet.
Why is oral and dental health important?
Dental disease puts your pet at risk for serious heart, liver and kidney diseases. Bacteria often enter the blood stream from dental infections and can cause permanent damage to these organs. Pets are now living much longer and healthier lives, thanks to advances in veterinary dentistry.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
We are allowing 1 client per pet into the hospital (up to a maximum of 3 clients in our hospital at one time). When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us so a staff member can meet you at the door and bring you and your pet into the hospital for an examination.
We ask that you wear a mask when in our building and encourage you to bring your own. While in the exam room please minimize contact and be mindful of physical distancing in the confined space.
You may choose to continue with the "closed-door" approach and we can obtain a history over the phone and then collect the pet at the door for the exam. The Veterinarian will then call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
