Pet Dental Care in Thousand Oaks, CA.
Does your pet have stinky breath when they kiss you? Have you looked in their mouth lately? Are your pet's teeth turning yellow? More than a simple cosmetic issue, bad breath, and yellowing of the teeth could be the first signs of oral disease in your pet. And worse, if these signs go untreated, they may lead to an even more severe form of disease affecting the liver, kidneys, and heart. Oral disease is the most commonly diagnosed health problems for pets, with most cats and dogs becoming affected by as young as 2 years old.
Don't look past "Garfield" and "Odie's" stinky breath! This odor could signify a serious health risk with the potential to affect not only the teeth and gums but the internal organs as well. From puppy hood all the way through adulthood, dental health should be a daily routine for all pet parents.
Here at East/West Vet Clinic we specialize in pet dental care in Thousand Oaks, CA.

Before sedation, updated blood work is highly recommended to be sure that there are no concerning abnormalities, for instance: infections, anemia's, kidney or liver problems. The kidneys and liver are responsible for breaking down the anesthesia to help ensure a normal healthy wake up after surgery. The blood work helps to determine the safest anesthetic protocol and can establish baselines for normal blood readings for your pet.
