Anesthesia Free Dental Hygiene Service:
No Anesthetic, No Sedatives, No Drugs of any kind,
Just a gentle loving cleaning

We offer anesthesia-free dental cleaning for dogs and cats. This is a safe and gentle way to have your pet’s teeth cleaned.  The procedure involves thorough manual scaling of all exposed surfaces of the teeth (including the tongue-side surfaces) and of the gingival sulcus (the crevice between the tooth and the gum), as well as polishing of exposed enamel.

Pets need regular teeth cleaning and are subject to tartar, plaque, gingivitis and many of same diseases of the teeth and gums as humans. Periodontal disease affects nearly 80% of all cats and dogs over the age of three. As with humans, it’s reversible condition in which bacteria get under the teeth and cause gum inflammation, eventually leading to loss of bone in the jaw and eventually leading to tooth loss.

Oral disease is one of the leading causes of other diseases in pets, according to the American Veterinary Dental Society. Bacteria incubate in the mouth and migrate to other parts of the body, including the heart and other organs.  Symptoms of gum disease in dogs and cats include yellow and brown build-up of tartar along the gum line, inflamed gums and persistent bad breath.

If more serious conditions are noted during the cleaning procedure, they are brought to your attention so that you may consult a veterinarian.
Our dental hygienist is a human dental hygienist who is also a veterinary technician.  She will also provide pet owners consultations on how to best care for their pet’s teeth and general information on pet oral hygiene.

The service is provided in your home where you can watch the whole procedure.
