Every year we offer a special discount off the price of a regular dental cleaning for dogs and cats during the months of December, January. and February, As February is National Pet Dental Health Month we would have the special during that month, but due to the overwhelming response we decided to extend our special for three months (and have done so for the past several years).
The dental special is a $50.00 discount off the price of a regular dental cleaning. Extractions and more extensive dental procedures are not discounted. The procedure is performed with the pet being placed under general anesthesia. One of our technicians monitors the anesthesia while the veterinarian performs the dental cleaning. Dental radiographs are also taken to be certain there is no underlying disease in the roots of the teeth. Following the cleaning the teeth are polished.
Contact the hospital at 847-647-9325 or through our website at nilesanimalhospital.com so we can set up presurgical bloodwork/evaluation and dental procedure.

A: We recommend pre-anesthetic blood work to detect any underlying disease that may affect our anesthetic protocol. Your pet will be under full anesthesia, while being monitored by a trained technician as well as monitored by pulse oximetry machines and Doppler blood pressure. Core body temperature, heart rate and respiratory rate are also monitored.
