Keeping your pet’s teeth clean is highly overlooked by pet owners. Many people have trouble brushing their pet’s teeth at home, so they just simply do not do it. Because our pets do not brush their teeth every night before bed like we do, tartar build-up can occur. Animal Crossing provides advanced veterinary dentistry services in addition to basic dental care. This includes routine oral check-ups, cleaning & polishing, teeth extractions, and the treatment of more complicated conditions. To help maintain the health of your pet’s mouth and teeth, you should bring your pet in for a dental check-up once a year.
Tarter removal is a procedure in which we perform dental scaling. We use an ultrasonic power scaler, along with hand-held instruments to remove tarter. Not only is tarter found on the surface of the tooth, but above and below the gum line as well.
Tooth extraction is a very common procedure that is done at Animal Crossing. We strive to keep as many teeth as possible in your baby’s mouth. Sometimes extracting a tooth is the only option to relive pain as well as ensure periodontal disease does not further advance. If a diseased tooth is not extracted, it can affect the surrounding tissue and neighboring teeth. Different treatment options are available if periodontal disease is caught early.
Animal Crossing does require anesthesia for dental procedures. If your dog/cat is over 8 years of age, we do require pre-surgical blood work. This is just to ensure that your fur baby will be able to handle the anesthesia during the procedure. Inside the mouth, we utilize anesthetic gel and local anesthetic injections to reduce pain. We closely monitor your pet the entire time they are under as well as after the entire procedure is done.
Catching dental problems in the early stages can greatly help your pet in the long run. Make an appointment if your pet experiences any of the following:
- Chronic bad breath
- Your pet shies away when you try to touch their mouth area
- Excessive drool
- Dropping food when eating
- Bleeding in your pet’s mouth
- Loss of appetite or weight loss
- Yellowish brown crust of tartar around the gum line
- Missing, loose or broken teeth
We recently moved to San Antonio & hadn’t found a vet for our two dogs but were looking here & there for their upcoming vaccines. Our sweet Lucy ended up getting super sick on us & I was looking around to see which vet was the best option for us when I found multiple great reviews on Animal Crossing Vet on a group for dog moms! We decided to take her in & found out she had pyometra. From the moment I called them to when I left it was all a great experience. The vet tech Rachel was very gentle with our Lucy & explained everything that had to be done. Dr. Glover reassured us everything would be fine & he would give us a call after surgery. She is now home resting after all the pain she endured. The drive is 30 min from where we live but it’s worth it for us. If you’re looking for a new vet, this ones it! 🐶🐾🤍Le'lony R.3/19/2020

The staff and Doctors are friendly. They treat you and your fur babies as if they are part of their family. I would not take my fur babies any where else!!!! I have used these Doctors for 13 years and have always been treated with the upmost care. They help you with any and all questions and comfort you when you have to lay a fur baby to rest. I can not has enough about Dr.Rode and the other Doctors and Staff.Pamela K.12/13/2019
