Dental Care for Dogs

Pet’s need dental care too! In fact, periodontal disease is the most commonly diagnosed disease in adult dogs. Bad breath, red swollen gums and tartar build-up are all linked to dental disease. If left untreated, your pet will experience significant discomfort and will require extensive dental procedures. Dental disease will also affect internal organs such as the heart and kidneys and can cause life threatening infections. At Morinville Veterinary Clinic, we believe strongly in preventative medicine. By treating dental disease in its early stages, your pet will live a longer happier life.

What types of dental care for dogs do you offer at your clinic?


Each pet is an individual, with varying needs. The veterinary team will work with you and your canine to create the best treatment plan. A typical dental may include dental x-rays, scaling, polishing and extractions. All of our dental procedures are done under a general anesthetic for your pet’s safety and comfort.

How often should you brush your dog’s teeth?


Brushing your dog’s teeth daily is best. Just like us humans, pets need dental care too. Ideally, you should brush your canine’s teeth daily. As pet owners ourselves, we understand this isn’t always possible with every pet. If you are unable to brush your pet’s teeth, contact us. We can create a customized dental plan for your pet to keep their mouths and bodies healthy and happy.

Why is oral and dental health important?


Dental health is part of your dog’s overall health. Dental disease can cause many issues including pain, infection, and can even affect internal organs. It is important to detect and treat periodontal disease early before it becomes a big problem.

Dear Clients,

Thank you for choosing Morinville Veterinary Clinic for your pets' veterinary needs. As we continue to adjust to the "new normal," we have implemented new protocols to keep you and our team safe.

It is still preferred that you stay in your vehicle while we bring your pet in for their appointment. However, as of Monday, July 21, 2020, we will be allowing one client to accompany their pet during their visit.

Along with wearing a face mask and using hand sanitizer, any client wishing to be present during an exam will need to record your name, phone number and email address for contact tracing purposes, in compliance with Alberta Health requirements.

Should you choose to come in with your pet, we kindly ask that you comply with the following protocols:

  • Our doors will remain locked. Please call us at 780.939.3133 upon your arrival.
  • Physical distance with staff and other clients while inside the building.
  • Face coverings must be worn to enter the clinic.
  • Use hand washing station upon entry.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
  • If you wish to wait in your vehicle during the appointment, when you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE

    If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
