This is Meg! Meg is an almost 13 year old Terrier Mix who is lively as can be! Meg came into CanyonVet for a routine dental cleaning. Since dogs cannot clean their teeth on a daily basis like us humans, it is important for them to get proper dental cleanings! If infected teeth and/or excessive tartar are left untreated it can lead to severe pain, inflammation, and tooth loss. Bacteria from infected teeth or excessive tartar can also lead to bacteria spreading to the major organs, as well. Included in a dental cleaning here at CanyonVet includes pre-anesthetic blood work; which checks cell count, organ functions , and electrolytes to help detect possible health problems that could cause a complication with anesthesia. Meg now has beautiful pearly whites and has a healthy mouth again!
