Animates Fixed Price Dental Scale & Polish

Periodontal disease is one of the most common conditions we see in practice. By the age of three years up to 80% of dogs and 70% of cats have signs of dental problems.

If you book your pet in for a dental at Animates they will be admitted in the morning, have a blood test to check their organ function, an intravenous fluid drip to protect their internal organs during the procedure, a general anaesthetic and a descale and polish.

Cat £125
Dogs weighing less than 20kg £150
Dogs weighing more than 20kg £180

If your pet’s mouth is particularly bad, for example there is infection present, multiple damaged or rotten teeth they may require antibiotics, additional pain relief or even extractions. Additional procedures do incur additional charges e.g extractions (£12 for cats and £15 for dogs per tooth).  This may not be identified until your pet is under the anaesthetic. After the scale and polish you will be entitled to 10% off the cost of any preventative homecare products bought from us on the day of the Scale and Polish or at the post-operative check a week later.

What is different about Animates’ dental package?

Not all dental packages are the same! In addition to a general anaesthetic and scale and polish our dental packages include the following as standard:

Pre-anaesthetic blood test

This test gives us information on your pet’s internal organs, in particular the liver and kidneys. In the early stages of reduced organ function, your pet may not be showing any signs of illness, which is why this blood test is required to pick up these problems, particularly in older animals. Identifying these problems enables us to greatly reduce the anaesthetic risk by giving supportive therapy before, during and after the anaesthetic. Occasionally it may be necessary to delay the procedure to allow treatment of an identified problem first.

Intravenous fluids (a drip)

IV fluids help to maintain the blood pressure and therefore blood to the vital organs and aids in the elimination of the anaesthetic agents, helping your pet recover to from the anaesthetic more rapidly, and should feel less groggy afterwards. It will also provide intravenous access in the event of an emergency.

Local anaesthetic pain relief (if extractions are necessary)

Dental extractions are a painful procedure and as such we want to be sure pain relief is optimal. Local blocks eliminate the perception of pain, and are the best form of pain control available. In addition to anti-inflammatory medication they allow your pet to be comfortable after the procedure and also allow safer anesthesia because when the procedure is less painful we can use less anaesthetic.

Dental X-Rays Optional Extra

We have recently started offering dental x-rays as an optional extra (These are currently only available at out Thurlby practice). Speak to a vet about if dental x-rays may be suitable for your pet.

Why might dental x-rays be beneficial?

  • X-rays allow better identification of dental pathology. In some cases of severe dental disease there may be infection and weakening of the jaw bone which can be identified on x-rays. This may change the extraction technique to minimize damage to the jaw. .
  • If a tooth is fractured x-rays help to identify if the fracture involves the root and if so how best to extract it. If a tooth is broken x-rays will show if the root has remained in the jaw and needs extracting. .
  • About 25-40% of cats have a condition which results in resorption of parts of the tooth. X-rays allow us to know if the root of a tooth has been affected and therefore what treatment is most appropriate. .
  • If there is a tooth which is borderline as to if it needs extracting, x-rays can reduce the number of extractions as these marginal teeth can be left in.
