Pet Dental Cleanings & Oral Care In Bealeton, Virginia

Oral Surgery

Dental and oral health is important to the overall health of your pet. Plaque build up on your pet’s teeth leads to bacterial infections that are painful and send bacteria throughout the body. This bacteria can lead to infections in the heart, gallbladder, kidneys, and other organs in the body. Also important, your pet needs to eat comfortably. These infections are painful, and they can lead to osteomyelitis (infection in the bone) that can compromise your pet’s jaw resulting in difficulty eating. With regular dental cleanings, our goal is to be able to prevent this from happening.

We perform complete oral examinations, oral cancer screenings, and dental services including ultrasonic cleaning and polishing for your pet. We also biopsy oral masses and perform extractions of diseased teeth. All of these exams and surgical treatments are performed in order that your pet has the healthiest mouth possible.

Routine Surgeries: Spays and Neuters

Spaying and neutering is important for your pet’s long term health. Spaying your female animal at the appropriate age (after physical maturity and bone development) can help prevent mammary masses and uterine infections. These mammary masses are very common, and in cats, they are almost always cancerous. In dogs, they are cancerous about 50% of the time. Spaying before multiple heat cycles decreases the risk of mammary cancer exponentially.

Along the same lines, when we spay your pet, we remove the ovaries and the uterus which prevents pyometras. A pyometra is an infection in the uterus which can lead to the uterus rupturing. This can be life threatening, and oftentimes, it occurs when your pet is older. Avoiding preventable surgery when your pet is older is best because the anesthesia is more complicated than when they are younger. This is why our veterinarians recommend that we spay your pet when she is young and healthy. Please consult with one of our veterinarians during your pet’s physical exam about the best time to spay your female pet.

Neutering your pet at the appropriate age is also important for his health. Cancer in the testes and prostate is much more common in unneutered males. In addition, unneutered males are most likely to mark in the house (especially cats), run away, or get lost. Male dogs are very likely to get benign hyperplasia of the prostate (urinating blood and experience painful, frequent urination) and prostatitis (infection in the prostate). The treatment for all the above mentioned issues and diseases is neutering your pet. Oftentimes, the result from waiting leads to having to do this procedure when your pet is ill which makes anesthesia more risky, and your pet ends up suffering more.

The safety of your pet is our top priority.

Many non-medical facilities offer spay and neuter services; however, our doctors are all experienced surgeons and are focused on your pet’s safety, health, and recovery. The safety of your pet is our top priority. At our facility, your pet will have the undivided attention of a trained staff member and veterinarian before, during and after his or her procedure. We do not take anesthesia lightly and understand that you are entrusting us with a special member of your family.
