A common concern that owners have about dental cleanings is that the pet has to be anesthetized. We do everything possible to make the procedure as safe as we can for every pet. Every animal is monitored by an experienced technician while under anesthesia. The technician will evaluate your pet's carbon dioxide and oxygen levels, body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and respiratory rate throughout the procedure and the doctor will adjust the anesthesia, when necessary. We use only the safest anesthetic protocols and tailor the drugs to fit each individual pet's need. We also offer pre-anesthetic lab work and IV fluids to further ensure the safety of your pet while under anesthesia.
