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 – Effective May 7th, 2020

Dear Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family,

With the new order issued by Governor Hogan, we are now able to resume full services again, including wellness visits and elective procedures such as spays, neuters, and dental cleanings. 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 will continue to follow our adjusted protocols for the hospital.

We will continue to only allow pets into 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.

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 wear masks and gloves, and also wash their hands following CDC recommendations with soap and water before and after each exam. Anyone feeling ill for any reason stays home, and all team member temperatures are taken prior to each shift. 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. We highly recommend for clients to wear masks and ask if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms to find your pet alternative transportation and alert staff that your pet is coming from a COVID-19 positive household. Thank you for your understanding.

Stay safe everyone!

Best,
The Team and Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care
