Dental Services

Galena Square Veterinary Clinic -  Galena - Pet DentistryOral health is important for your pet's overall well being.  Our staff offer a wide range of services from teaching clients how to brush their pet's teeth to periodontal surgery and everything in between.

Dental disease is the number one diagnosed disease in dogs and cats today.  Bacteria from dental disease move throughout the body and can cause damage to vital organs such as the heart.  It is estimated that by the age of 3, up to 80% of dogs and 70% of cats are already affected.  Prevention is the key, beginning with oral care at home and continuing with more advanced care at Galena Square Veterinary Clinic.

Please Note: Unfortunately a dental (sometimes referred to as a COHAT or Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment) is not the same at all veterinary hospitals.  To get high quality care you need to investigate and and choose a hospital with high standards.  A good clinic should be willing to discuss their procedures with you including the type of anesthetics and monitoring equipment used to ensure the safety of your pet.

Pain Management

Pets feel pain every bit as much as people do even if they try not to show it!  The doctors and staff of Galena Square Veterinary Clinic recognize that alleviating pain is paramount to the care and comfort of your pet. We use both general and local anesthetics and employ injectable analgesics (pain medications) for our in-patients as well as oral pain medications to go home.
