COHAT stands for Comprehensive Oral Health Assessment and Treatment.

The COHAT is much more than just a dental cleaning. It includes an examination of your pets’ oral cavity, dental charting, dental x-rays, cleaning and polishing of the teeth. After reviewing the dental x-rays, more work may need to be performed, such as extractions or tooth amputations. To accomplish all of this properly and thoroughly you pet must be put under general anesthesia.
