Top Pet Dental Care for Your Companion
Pet dental care often gets put on the back burner when it comes to overall pet wellness, but it’s just as important as your own. If left to their own devices, disease can develop. Periodontal disease is a serious condition that causes more than pain and discomfort—it can damage your pet’s vital organs if left untreated. Luckily, there’s plenty you can do, the first of which is scheduling an appointment for pet dental care at our animal hospital in Edgewater.
Caring for Teeth and Gums
A good professional cleaning gives your pets a healthy edge. We clean above and below the gumline, taking care to also examine for periodontal pockets, chipped or broken teeth, and other signs of disease. We perform:
- Scaling and polishing
- Fluoride treatments
- Extractions if needed
- X-Rays with extractions to ensure the whole tooth is removed
Safety With Anesthesia
For pet dental care to be effective, we use general anesthesia to sedate your pet. Thorough cleaning and examination requires work below the gumline—a feat we would never accomplish with an alert pet. While there are risks with anesthesia, we take every precaution to ensure your pet is healthy enough to receive the treatment. We perform pre-anesthetic bloodwork, as well as X-rays for senior pets, and EKGs for those with heart issues. Additionally, your pet will receive nerve blocks before and after the procedure for pain management. Please know that your pet is in good hands.
Keep the Momentum Going: At-Home Care
You know the dentist gives you the very best clean, but that doesn’t stop you (or it shouldn’t!) from continuing consistent at-home care. The same is true for your pet. Daily brushing is ideal, and after every dental cleaning, we send you home with a pet dental care kit that includes a toothbrush and toothpaste. We also highly recommend rinses and chews, as daily brushing is sometimes impossible with an uncooperative pet.

My experience with Broadway Animal Hospital has been great in dealing with my 18 year old kitty who has failing kidneys. Super friendly and very helpful. Dr Perry and hospital manager, Michael, have gone above & beyond and have been great about calling me with updates and more. I appreciate them and I am glad they're in the neighborhood.
I trust the care of my beloved 11-year-old pug to Dr. Perry. He is very knowledgeable and gentle. He is not only a doctor, but also a friend who listens. The front staff are always polite and considerate. I love this place! So glad I found it since I am new to Chicago
I've been taking my cat to Broadway Animal Hospital the past few years until recently when she passed away suddenly from a rapidly declining lung condition.
When Dr. Kas was informed of my cat's passing he called me personally to say he was sorry and really comforted me in my time of mourning... I really appreciate that quality of service. I have had nothing but great experiences when I took my kitty in for checkups. When I'm ready to adopt another furry life companion, I'll gladly take them there
Fantastic doctors and staff! Dr. Kaz and his entire staff were just wonderful with our little girl chihuahua mix. Would highly recommend to all!
Dr. Kas and his staff are wonderful. I've been going to BAH for almost 35 years and would never consider going elsewhere. When I visit, I know my companions have had the very best care (and the most up to date care) available. Thank goodness they are here for us!
I rushed my sick cat here for the first time in tears with no appointment made. They took her in immediately and Michael (the manager) stayed with me and her for an entire day while she was sustained on oxygen. Dr. Perry and Michael both did all they could to save my kitty. She was 17 years old and unfortunately passed away when I took her home and off of the oxygen. This office and staff handled her cremation arrangements with such sensitivity and grace and dr. Perry called me immediately after hearing the news of her her passing. I will never take my fur babies anywhere else but here. Your pets are in loving, professional and gentle hands here.
I have been taking our pets here for over 20 yrs now and BAH has always been the best.
Dr. Kaz and his great staff are always professional and exceedingly kind.
We LOVE Broadway Animal Hospital!
What an exceptionally friendly and well-run office! Everyone on staff was extremely helpful and outwardly happy to help. They treated my cat like she was their own and talked me through everything they were doing. If she needs anything else going forward, this is who I'll be taking her to.
I’ve visited 6 animal hospitals as I have moved several times around Chicago. This is hands down the best experience I’ve ever had with a vet in terms of care, pricing and friendliness. Now that my dog is 8 years old, I feel happy to say that we’ve found a team of vets that we trust.
The staff was wonderful! The vet was excellent! We were in and out very quickly but all my questions were answered ! Highly recommend!
I could not love Dr. Kaz and his team more! They are professional and kind and they truly care about each and every one of their patients.
