Cat Dentistry

As you well know we can’t count on our cats to brush their own teeth after eating and if you’ve tried brushing your cat’s teeth, you know that it can be a bit challenging.

At Care Animal Hospital the latest advances in dental technology are available to treat cat dentistry problems of all sizes. With the addition of a high tech digital dental x-ray machine, we can address not only routine scale and polish procedures, but major extractions as well.

At Care Animal Hospital, we recommend an annual dental scale and polish for your feline friend at the first sign of tartar build up. For most cats, this begins as early as 3 to 4 years old and will continue annually for the rest of their life.

Routine Dental Cleaning
To prevent dental disease, it is advised that your cat receive annual dental cleanings from a veterinarian.  When you bring your feline friend to Care Animal Hospital in Brandon for a cleaning, here is what you can expect:

  • Patient arrives in the morning and will stay for the day
  • General Anesthesia
  • Thorough Oral Exam
  • Digital X-Rays (if needed)
  • Extractions (if needed)
  • Scale and Polish
  • Patient is moved to recovery and monitored

The following dental maintenance products are also available for purchase:

  • Flavored Toothpaste
  • Oral Sealant (available as part of the procedure)
  • Water Additives
  • Disinfectant Mouth Spray

“As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.”

Ellen Perry Berkley

Cats are wonderfully unique among animals.

It’s hard to tell sometimes whether they’re playing with you – or you’re playing with them. It’s that special bond between you and your cat that makes living with a cat so enjoyable.

And while cats are certainly fun and beautiful companions, we must make sure they are getting the proper medical and nutritional care they need to keep them happy and healthy for the years ahead. Over the past 25 years at Care Animal Hospital, we’ve helped thousands of cats and kittens by protecting them against sickness and disease through routine exams, various tests, and annual vaccinations.
