Dental Care Services

At St. Petersburg Animal Hospital & Urgent Care, we understand that your pet’s oral health is essential for their overall well-being.

We encourage all of our pet parents to participate in preventative oral hygiene practices such as:

  • Regular brushing of your pet’s teeth with pet-safe toothpaste and a soft brush.
  • Using oral rinses
  • Offering safe dental chew treats, & toys to promote oral health.
  • Monitoring for signs of dental problems, such as bad breath, swollen gums, or difficulty eating.
  • Schedule regular dental check-ups with our team for early detection.

There are times when your pet may require a professional dental procedure under anesthesia to properly manage more severe cases of periodontal and gum disease; a fractured tooth; a tooth root abscess or possibly an extraction.

Our Dental Care Service includes:

  • A full set of dental x-rays, allowing us to diagnose dental issues below the gumline accurately.
  • Safe and effective ultrasonic teeth scaling to remove plaque and tartar buildup
  • Polishing the teeth to smooth the surface
  • Fluoride rinse to strengthen the teeth.
  • When necessary, tooth extractions are performed to remove damaged or problematic teeth, ensuring your pet’s comfort and well-being

Dental care is important to maintain healthy teeth and gums, prevent dental diseases, and avoid tooth loss. Each pet’s dental health is different and therefore requires dental procedures based on their individual needs.

  • Our team stays updated with the latest techniques and technologies in veterinary dentistry.
  • Modern dental equipment enables us to provide the highest quality care.
  • Compassionate Care: We prioritize your pet’s comfort and well-being, ensuring a stress-free experience.
  • Personalized Treatment: We tailor our dental services to meet your pet’s unique needs and requirements.
