Our team continues to be here for you and your cherished pets. We are OPEN and are now able to provide a wide range of services. To learn more about the changes we have implemented in response to COVID-19 and what to expect during your next visit, click here.
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.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 11, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
