Dental Care for Dogs

Dental disease affects a large percentage of dogs. It can be painful and negatively impact their overall health. Some symptoms can be foul breath, excessive drooling, changes in eating habits, pawing at the face or mouth and red or swollen gums. We provide complete and thorough dental services to treat and prevent dental disease.

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?

We offer a wide range of dental services, such as consultations with our technicians, tooth brushing demonstrations and we have several oral health products available for purchase. At Cumberland Veterinary Clinic, we take pride in providing your pet with the highest quality dental procedure as possible. If your dog requires a dental prophylaxis, we perform full mouth digital dental x-rays, cleaning, polishing, fluoride treatment and dental extractions if required.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?

Daily brushing is the gold standard for plaque control. We understand that this can be difficult to accommodate. Try to aim for every other day if daily brushing is not possible. There are many products available to maintain your pet’s oral health, such as dental diets, chews, oral rinses, water additives and gels. Please contact us if you would like a tooth brushing demonstration and to determine a dental home care plan that works for you and your dog.

Why is oral and dental health important?

Dental disease is painful and negatively impacts your dog’s overall health. It can affect their quality of life by causing discomfort when eating, playing or grooming.

COVID-19: Additional measures we are taking

Dear Clients,

Due to the close contact that our work requires, we have taken additional measures to protect you and our team while providing care for your furry family members.

The following changes are effective as of Monday, March 23, 2020:

1. We are currently operating a “closed waiting room” policy and "drop off" policy to protect our clients and staff. We ask that you follow these steps:

a. When you arrive, please remain stay in the hallway and use your cell phone to call us at 306.373.3500. Please ensure your pet is either in a carrier or has a collar that can be attached to a leash.

b. Once an exam room is ready, we will come to take your pet from you and into an exam room and call you to take a history and talk about any concerns.

c. Once the exam is over we call you with our recommended treatment plan, we can then arrange to take payment over the phone./p>

d. We will then bring your pet out to you in the hallway.

2. We are giving priority to urgent or sick pets, as well as time-sensitive puppy/kitten vaccinations. All other services please give us a call and we can decide if the appointment can be done at a later time.

3. As of March 30th we are still OPEN with the following hours: Monday through Friday: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Saturday: 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, & closed on Sundays

4. If you are ordering food or medications, please allow 2-4 business days as our suppliers are dealing with increased demand and are trying to fill orders as quickly as possible. We will advise you as soon as your order arrives and you will be asked to pay over the phone. Please call us when you arrive to pick up your order, and we will place your order outside on the table or bring to you in the hallway.

5. For the time being, we are not accepting cash as payment. Credit cards and debit card payments are still available.

Following the recommendations of our government and medical experts, we are doing our best to practice social distancing within the constraints of our roles. As such, we have taken measures to avoid both contracting and facilitating the spread of this virus.

Thank you for helping us be diligent for everyone's safety. As we have heard from all levels of government, the situation is fluid and any updates will be provided as changes occur.
