How does Staging work?
1. Vet examines and reviews x-rays, charting and
the overall oral health of the animal
2. Vet explains to the owner the benefits of staging
of procedures, and books the appointments
3. Vet judges what can be done within the time left
(2hr slot), for immediate treatment
4. If further treatments are needed, these can be
done in either stage 2 or (if necessary) stage 3
Are there risks to the Animals Health
Studies show there is only an increased
risk to the health of the animal if put
under anaesthesia for longer than 2 hours.
Therefore, by staging the procedures into
separate visits of 2 hour sessions, the use of
Anaesthetic is limited to one per session, and
so significantly lowering the risk.
Vet X-ray Dental Staging
X-Ray Dental Staging is after the initial examination of the patient, the vet
will discussing with the owner, what procedures are required and the cost.
Then vet will agree with the owner to spread out the procedures over a
number of appointments, done in stages. This is beneficial to the Veterinary
Practice by allowing time to be allocated appropriately, thereby maximising
the practices scheduling. As the sessions are scheduled for only 2 hours,
the animal has significantly reduced risk to their health from being under
anesthesia, as studies show. For the owner staging the procedures, eases
the financial burden, as the cost is spread out over the specific time frame.
