Dentistry

Dental health is just as important in pets as it is in people. Dental disease can lead to bad breath, infection, pain, and systemic diseases. During each examination, we will perform an oral exam and dental evaluation, and discuss the state of your pet’s dental hygiene. At that time we may recommend a teeth cleaning to keep your pet’s teeth healthy, and to remove tartar, plaque and treat gingivitis.

In order to try to prevent, or decrease the frequency of the need for an anesthetic dental cleaning, we highly recommend daily tooth brushing. We have supplies including toothbrushes, toothpaste and a variety of dental treats within the hospital that you can use for daily maintenance and a healthy pet mouth.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family,

As you are all aware, the spread of COVID-19 is causing massive disruptions locally and across our nation. We want you inform you that we remain OPEN with regular business hours to help provide healthcare to your beloved pets. In order to keep our valued clients and caring team healthy, and do our part in social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have adjusted our protocols for the hospital.

For now, only pets are allowed in to the hospital. Clients will have the opportunity to Zoom video conference into their pet’s exam, or the doctor will call you on the phone after the doctor has completed the examination if you do not want to use Zoom. You may view the complete protocol here.

Since this is an ever changing situation, we will adjust as needed in accordance with the CDC, WHO, state and local guidelines. We will keep you updated with any changes via email and on our Facebook and Instagram accounts.

Please note that there are no current indications that COVID-19 affects pets.

We already have rigorous cleaning protocols in place for the hospital, and we have increased the frequency of these cleanings as well. All team members wash their hands following CDC recommendations with soap and water before and after each exam. Anyone feeling ill for any reason is urged to stay home. The additional measures taken are for the safety of our clientele and our team so that we can continue to serve the needs of our patients and our community that we love. Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe everyone!

Best,
The Team and Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care
