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 for Our Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Family

Effective June 25th, 2020

Even though we have resumed full services and restrictions are starting to ease in our region, the coronavirus is still present and a serious concern. For that reason, we feel it is in the best interests of our team and clients to continue curbside care for the foreseeable future.

This means we will continue to limit access to our hospital to Woodley Gardens team members and client pets only, and our doctors will communicate with you via ZOOM conference during the appointment, or on the phone right after your pet’s appointment. If you use the ZOOM app, you can see your pet during the appointment. You can view our complete curbside protocol here.

We will also continue to maintain rigorous cleaning protocols, strict hand-washing procedures, and a mandatory stay-at-home policy for any staff member who is feeling ill. Temperatures are taken before each shift, and we require masks for all staff as well.

We ask that if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms or have been exposed to COVID-19 that you find alternative transportation for your pet and alert us that he or she is coming from a COVID-19 positive household.

Thank you so much for your patience and cooperation, and please check our Facebook page for timely updates.

Stay safe and well, everyone!

The Woodley Gardens Veterinary Care Team
