Dental Prophylaxis

If we determine your pet needs a dental we will have you schedule an appointment to drop them off (between 7:30-8:00am) on a Monday or a Friday. Our dental patients are usually able to go home the same day after their dental procedure. Please do not offer them food after 8 pm the evening before the dental cleaning, and nothing to eat the morning of. Offering them water is acceptable. Please bring any medications with you before giving them that morning to discuss administration with the doctor that will be doing the dental cleaning.

Student involvement in cases

Senior Veterinary students are an important part of our Community practice service (or team). A senior veterinary student will greet you and ask you questions regarding your pet's health and perform a physical examination on your pet. The student will present this information to a Veterinary Clinician and together they will develop recommendations for your pet. All pets are given a thorough examination by a licensed veterinarian. Once the team has collaborated, they will meet with you to discuss their recommendations. Our wellness appointments last approximately 60 minutes. More information about the veterinary students at the Hospital.
