The Annual Dental Madness is upon us!

Dental Care for your pet is extremely important. It is probably one of the most important aspects of your pet’s health. And the majority of oral diseases are easily prevented.

Here are some facts to keep in mind when considering your pet’s oral health, veterinary dental procedures and the costs associated with them:

  • Humans can understand what is going on at the Dentist’s office and will willingly co-operate to sit quietly in the chair and allow examination and minor interventions. Dogs and cats cannot understand what is going on and will not sit quietly to allow a thorough and safe oral examination. Thus, dogs and cats MUST be under general anesthesia for their dental treatments, thereby increasing the work required and the cost.
  • Humans brush their teeth twice a day, floss regularly and have their teeth professionally cleaned every 6-9 months. Dogs and cats (most of them) do not get their teeth brushed at all. Dogs and cats are having their teeth professionally treated far less often (on average) and so have more trouble accumulated at each treatment. Each treatment will thus require more time than the average human patient.


Is your pet experiencing any of the following? If so, it is time for an examination and possibly a dental treatment!

  1. Bad breath (halitosis)
  2. Broken tooth/teeth
  3. Excessive drooling
  4. Reluctance to eat, especially dry food, or to play with chew toys
  5. Chewing with or favoring one side of the mouth
  6. Pawing at or rubbing the muzzle/mouth
  7. Bleeding from the mouth
  8. Loss of symmetry of the muzzle and/or lower jaw
  9. Swollen/draining tracts under (or in front of) the eye
  10. Sudden change in behavior (aggressive or withdrawn)
  11. Chronic eye infections or drainage with no exact cause or cure
  12. Inability to open or close the mouth
  13. Chronic sneezing
  14. Discolored tooth/teeth
  15. Abnormal discharge from nose
  16. A mass/growth in the mouth

Here's what some of our clients have to say..........


"I can confidently say this is the first vet that we have trusted and has brought back faith that we can trust other vets in the future. Thanks DVC!"

 "Exemplary service and compassion at all levels from the moment you walk through the door! They take time to explain your pet's issues and follow-up with a phone call to ensure all is well. Better than health care for humans in Bend. You cannot go wrong with these folks. I have never created a review in any medium; the service these folks provide is so "above and beyond" I feel compelled to encourage pet owners to give patron to DVC." 

"We have lived in Bend for 29 years, and have been with Deschutes Vet Clinic the entire time. You simply won't find a more caring and compassionate group of doctors and staff anywhere. I wish I could find physicians for my own care that were this good. We recently lost one of our golden retrievers after 17 years - you don't achieve that type of long life span in dog without stellar veterinary care!"
