A Surgical Release Form will need to be completed before anyanesthetic procedure can be performed.
During dental prophylactic cleanings at Rathdrum Animal Clinic, we provide a full-mouth ultrasonic scale and mechanical polish, a full-mouth radiography survey, and a complete oral exam by the veterinarian. The procedure takes approximately 90 minutes under anesthesia.
It is the policy of Rathdrum Animal Clinic not to extend elective anesthetic procedures past a 2-hour time frame as this puts additional stress on the pet’s body and can impact recovery time. If a procedure is expected to take longer than 2 hours due to necessary tooth extractions or other oral surgery procedures, your veterinarian will recommend a second oral procedure to perform any additional services.
