Dental Care

Regular dental care is essential for keeping your best friend happy and healthy. Dental disease is a common issue among household pets, and it can lead to serious health problems if left untreated. Periodic dental exams also help maintain proper oral hygiene and prevent future complications.

At Touhy Animal Hospital, we offer complete pet oral health services, including:

  • Annual dental cleanings
  • Preventative dental care
  • Extractions

Following American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines, Touhy Animal Hospital only does cleanings and dental work on anesthetized pets. To ensure your pet is healthy enough to undergo anesthesia, we require a routine blood test before the procedure.


Preventive Dental Care

Brushing your pet’s teeth several times per week is the best way to prevent plaque and tartar build-up. Interested in learning how to brush your pet’s teeth? Just ask and our veterinarians will be happy to help you get started. If you have a pet that won’t tolerate brushing, our veterinarians can also recommend products that will help keep your pet’s mouth healthy in between cleanings.

To make an appointment for a dental exam or cleaning, call us at (847) 698-3123.
