How to Prepare Your Pet for a Dental Exam

Are you wondering what you should do to prepare your pet for a dental exam? Fortunately, there are a few simple ways to get ready for your appointment so you can both feel comfortable on the day of the exam.

First, most vets will ask you not to put food down the night before the exam. This is especially common for pets who need to go under anesthesia for cleaning or surgery. By following these instructions, you help to secure the safety of your pet during the procedure.

Water and medication, on the other hand, is typically administered freely before a dental exam. If you there is any concern regarding a negative reaction, you will be advised not to give your pet medication until after the appointment.

Finally, give your pet a chance to get some exercise before entering the office. Squeeze in a bathroom break, play fetch and enjoy the fresh air. Sometimes a little bit of activity can expel negative energy and reduce the overall anxiety of your pet.

If you are not fond of your own dentist, you probably understand how your dog feels when it’s time to make an appointment too. For more information about pet dental service in San Jose, visit this website today.
