Tooth extraction for pets is a pretty common dental procedure. Dr. Henderson and Dr. Kozakiewicz offer this procedure for their patients at Valley Animal Hospital.

All pets that are scheduled for oral surgery of any kind will be under anesthesia during the procedure. The main reason for this is simple: your pet could never remain still, especially with the noisy equipment used. This could cause major complications, as sharp tools and a hyper pet does not mix well. Although you may have heard the risks of anesthesia, we assure you that our team at Valley Animal Hospital go the extra mile to make sure it remains as close to zero risks as possible.
A complete dental prophylaxis (dental care program) is one of the ways Valley Animal Hospital helps you keep your dog or cat healthy. If your pet has had oral surgery or pet dental extractions, it is crucial to maintain regular routine visits for our dental care program for your pet.
