After your pet is admitted in the morning they will have any pre-anesthetic preparations done (such as pre-operative bloodwork and placing an IV catheter). Your pet is then anesthetized by a doctor and one of our experienced veterinary technicians will begin the dental cleaning process - much like a dental hygienist at your dental office. Dental x-rays are also performed at this time. After the x-rays are taken and the teeth are cleaned and polished, the doctor will evaluate your pet's teeth, gums and mouth, as well as any x-rays taken. If evaluation is normal your pet goes into recovery at that time. If any abnormalities are noted by the doctor, they will call you with a recommendation for further treatment.
