Dental Care

Dental care

At Tipp City Veterinary Hospital, we do cat and dog dental care differently. Our mission is to help pets live their best life through extraordinary care.  To further that goal, our highly trained staff are committed to restoring your pet’s mouth to full health. Dental disease is more than just a cosmetic issue: it injures the liver, kidneys, and heart. In turn, this shortens our cats’ and dogs’ lifespans and hurts their quality of life.

What do we do differently?

A complete physical and oral exam

Firstly, our doctors perform complete physical exams to ensure the health and safety of our patients and create personalized plans. Then, under anesthesia veterinary nurses and doctors perform a complete oral exam. This complete oral exam allows us to identify all visible issues in the mouth.

Safe and comfortable anesthesia

We can’t explain to pet’s what and why we are doing this procedure. Anesthesia provides comfort, safety, and stress relief for your pet for a pain free experience. Dental care can’t happen without it! Rest assured, anesthesia is tailored to your pet and and any medical conditions.

Before anesthesia, blood work allows us to identify any health issues that we can’t see on our physical exam. It also makes anesthesia a safer and more comfortable process.

During anesthesia, all pets are comprehensively monitored by a licensed and well trained professional before and after anesthesia.

Full mouth dental radiographs

Only about a third of the tooth is visible above the gumline! Dental care is not complete without radiographs. They allow identification of any issues below the gumline.  We perform radiographs at no additional cost if you schedule your pet’s procedure the same day that a procedure is recommended by a veterinarian.

Restoring your pet’s mouth to a clean and healthy state 

Cleaning and polishing restores healthy teeth and gum tissue and freshens pets’ breath by removing unhealthy plaque, tartar, and infection.

Follow up care and consultation

We provide complete updates and instructions; included in the procedure is a discussion of home dental care as well as a complimentary evaluation of healing and progress.

Patient DependentDental care

Tooth extractions and surgery

Unfortunately, sometimes tooth extraction is necessary.   Removal prevents further decay, infection, and damage; this in turn relieves pain and improves pets’ quality of life. We safely and completely address the problematic teeth.

Tooth extractions range in complexity; some require up to an hour of operation time. We properly close the surgery site, ensuring your pet’s comfort. This will ensure proper healing and prevent quick return of dental disease.  

Pain management

We provide comprehensive pain management including local anesthesia (numbing) and pain medication.

I love taking my dog to doggy daycare. The associates at the front desk are so very kind, more like amazing. When I bring my dog in for doggy daycare they are excited to see him. I love watching the dogs play on the live stream, such a great feature. My dog loves playing with the other dogs and sometimes he has to much fun. Abby as well as the other girls, but especially Abby, does a great job with my dog and knows when he needs a rest period. I whole heartedly recommend Tipp to Tail Pet Resort and Spa.

We were looking for a vet that was caring and made us feel that our dog mattered to them. Dr. Emily Benedict is very knowledgeable and really listened to us. She was very compassionate. The whole staff made us feel welcome from the time we arrived and beyond.

Our dogs love going and they saved our older dog's life when she had an allergic reaction 💕
