Pet Dental Services
Striegel Animal Hospital provides veterinary dental services including cleaning, polishing, dental X-rays, and extractions. Additionally, we can perform tooth trimming for rabbits, guinea pigs, and other pocket pets. Our bird patients can have their beaks trimmed, too.
Most veterinary dental cleanings do not require an overnight stay. We offer drop-off appointments for your convenience. Your pet’s safety and comfort are important to us. All dental cleanings are performed under general anesthesia.
All patients undergo an exam and laboratory testing prior to being anesthetized to ensure they are healthy enough to receive the anesthesia. Our experienced veterinary team carefully and skillfully monitors your pet during the dental procedure. We will explain post-operative care instructions after the procedure.
