Dental Health for Dogs & Cats

Routine dental care can help to preserve your pet's oral health, yet it is often neglected. Lack of attention to your dog or cat's oral health could result in painful dental issues.

Regular dental care is crucial when it comes to preventing the buildup of plaque and tartar, which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. At Creston Veterinary Hospital, our team of veterinarians wants to make sure your pet receives the highest-quality dental care.

We provide a variety of dental care services at our veterinary clinic, ranging from basic dental exams, teeth cleanings and polishing, to dental X-rays and surgeries.

Dental Surgery for Dogs & Cats

We offer dental surgery for cats and dogs, including procedures like jaw fracture repair, tooth extractions and treatment for periodontal disease. Rest assured, your furry friend is in good hands with us!

We understand that it can feel a bit overwhelming when you find out that your pet needs dental surgery. But we are here to try and make this process as stress-free as possible for both you and them.

Your dog or cat will receive anesthesia before their dental surgery to make sure they are comfortable and won't feel any pain.

We'll make sure to explain every step of the process to you in detail before the procedure, including what you need to do to prepare and take care of your pet afterwards.
