Dental Care Services for Pets

Taking care of your pet’s teeth is no easy task. At Green Lane Animal Hospital, we’re glad to provide resources and medical support when necessary. Not only can we care for your pet’s dental health, we can share advice on how you can better tend to their oral hygiene at home. To learn more about our dental services, contact us at 905.597.7373.

What dental services do you provide?

Our dental services include teeth cleaning and polishing, dental X-rays, tooth extractions and minor oral surgery. We also provide resources, such as dental home care kits and water additives, which is a preventative medicine that blocks plaque, tartar and oral bacteria from developing. These tools help owners care for their pet’s teeth and gums between dental appointments.

Is it necessary for me to bring my pet in for dental appointments?

Yes. While we do encourage pet owners to care for their furry friend’s teeth, routine dental appointments allow us to monitor your pet’s overall dental health. Our veterinarians can spot the early signs of dental diseases, like gingivitis, before they create long-term damage. We also use dental X-rays to inspect the health of their gums and search for invisible illnesses. Check out our Facebook page to see the positive impact of our dental care.

How do I protect my pet’s teeth from damage?

One of the most important ways you can ensure your pet’s teeth stay in good shape is by regularly brushing them. We know it can be difficult sometimes, but we’d be happy to show you some tricks. Other ways you can care for your pet’s oral health is by giving them appropriate chew toys. Bully sticks are delicious, digestive and can help clean your pet’s teeth. When choosing a chew toy, look for the “VOHC” seal to confirm that it’s been approved by the Veterinary Oral Health Council as a safe and effective toy. These items can help reduce the formation of plaque and tartar on your pet’s teeth.

*NEW CLIENTS AND NEW PATIENTS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!*

The time has come to begin our reopening process! We cannot believe it has been over a year since we’ve had you all in the clinic but we are excited and eager to welcome you back. Please read carefully below for our updated policies and protocols.

SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE

  • Effective October 20, 2021, we will be allowing vaccinated clients in the clinic for doctors’ appointments only. Technician appointments and medication/food pick up will continue to be curbside to control the amount of people in the clinic at any given time.
  • We will be allowing one client to accompany their pet in the appointment. Because we will only be allowing one client in at a time, we will not be able to permit children to accompany their parents. There is a strict one-client rule due to the size of our examination rooms.
  • When you arrive for your appointment, please give the clinic a call at 905-597-7373. A Client Care Representative will either let you know the technician is ready to meet you at the door or will retrieve a phone number if we are not quite ready yet.
  • A technician will meet you at the front door. Please have your vaccine passport/identification ready at this time. The technician will also ask you a few COVID-19 Screening questions before guiding you into the clinic.
  • Face masks are still required to enter the hospital and must be worn properly at all times within the clinic and when interacting with our team members outside.
  • Please sanitize your hands upon entry.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • FOOD AND PRESCRIPTION ORDERS

    We appreciate advance notice for food and prescription refills. Please call 905.597.7373 upon arrival at the FRONT DOOR and a receptionist will be out with your order right away. For faster service, we suggest ordering pet supplies and food through our online store. Delivery is free with purchases over $100.00. It's easy! Just click ONLINE STORE on our website to sign up.
