What Is Periodontal Care?
Just like humans, cats and dogs need good oral care to help them avoid periodontal problems. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is the inflammation or infection of the gum tissue that can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. Gum diseases, including gingivitis and periodontitis, are both preventable and treatable. Integrative veterinary expert Dr. Hunter Finn recommends yearly oral checkups and x-rays to detect dental problems, like gum disease, which can hide beneath the surface of the gumline. If gum disease is discovered, Dr. Finn provides deep cleanings along with surgical treatment options at Pet Method in McKinney, TX. He and his team aim to help pets live longer, more vibrant lives by providing the highest quality of care.
How Periodontal Care Works
For all veterinary dental procedures at Pet Method, your pet will be asleep under general anesthesia to ensure the highest degree of comfort and safety. Gum disease is usually diagnosed through dental x-rays performed at our McKinney, TX vet clinic. When discovered early on, gum disease is very treatable. Stage one gum disease starts with inflammation or redness of the gums (gingivitis), which progresses into gum recession and exposure of the tooth roots in the later phases (periodontitis). Usually, a deep cleaning is done to remove excess plaque and tartar buildup. Late-stage periodontitis might require more advanced surgical treatments. Dr. Finn will talk with you about establishing a good at-home oral care routine that includes brushing your pet's teeth along with dental hygiene chews or other approved dental products.

Pet Method Reviews
The staff was very accommodating to fit us in as a semi emergency, same day, new patient. Dr Finns recommended treatment worked beautifully. His demeanor was outstanding, he examined my dog where he was most comfortable ie: in my lap and on the floor. Highly recommend.
Me and my fur baby meeko drive from Cedar Hill to come here! It really is just amazing. Meeko absolutely loves all the staff, they are all so friendly! Pet method has definitely taken the right precautions to ensure that both your fur baby and you have a stress free visit!! We plan on sticking with pet method for a long time!! Picture of how meeko felt after his visit 🤣
Wow, what a great experience! Dr. Finn and his staff were absolutely wonderful. They were super friendly, answered all my questions, had a super clean office, and treated my cat with kindness and respect. I have been to many vets around the DFW area, and this has been the best experience I have had at a vet. Definitely will bring all my pets here for future wellness checks and more. Thank you!
I’m new to McKinney and needed to find a vet. I took my older lab, Buddy, to Pet Method. Everyone was so kind and friendly. I was getting around with a broken foot and they went above and out of their way to help me with Buddy while we were there. I loved how they got on the floor with Buddy, at his level and not putting him on an exam table. It made a world of difference. I will definitely take Buddy back from now on!
Everyone here is so kind & patient. My mom is 75 and we had to take her toy poodle here for an injury he had with his nail. They were all so good with him and very detailed about everything going on. Prices were affordable and service was great! Thank you for taking care of Wheatley!
