Cat & Dog Teeth Cleaning

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 a cat or dog teeth cleaning appointment at our animal hospital in Edgewater.

Caring for Teeth and Gums

A good professional cat or dog teeth 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.

The vet and the staff are nice, attentive and very knowledgeable. We are so happy on how much attention they give such as doing follow up calls to check on my dog after getting his immunizations and how understanding they were because my dog felt very anxious. Definitely recommend this place and we’re so happy to find a vet near us that’s way better than the one that we used to go to.

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!

Yesterday was Jackson's first visit. We found the clinic and its staff A1 -- we received a follow up call today to check how Jackson was doing post shots. He is well; chewing his favorite toy and all is well. We highly recommend this very impressive pet care center: 5 star service 5 star staff.

Connor R.

Great people with neighborhood feel. Always call to check up after appointments and have worked my dog in on very short notice on multiple occasions.

Jeff B.

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.

Carol-Ann B.

The staff was wonderful! The vet was excellent! We were in and out very quickly but all my questions were answered ! Highly recommend!

I have been taking my cat there for about 8 years. They have been very helpful and even saved me money from unnecessary procedures when my cat was sick. They truly care for the well being of the animals. Prices are reasonable also. Friendly and knowledgeable stuff.

I brought my old dog, a thirteen-year-old Siberian husky, here when his body began to fail in his old age. Dr. Perry was so tender and caring with him, and they ensured me that nothing was seriously wrong with him other than the effects of age. He passed nearly a year later, and he did so quietly and peacefully, not racking up any vet bills to try and "bring him back." So glad to have BAH in my neighborhood! Thanks, guys!
