non-anesthetic dental cleaning
According to the American Veterinary Dental Society 80% of dogs and 70% of cats by the age 3 show signs of periodontal disease. Without proper dental care for your pet they can develop gingivitis, which is plaque build-up on a cat or dog’s teeth and gums that may appear red and swollen. This can progress to further oral diseases such as periodontis and loss of teeth.
Our hygienists perform a thorough dental exam on your pet without the use of anesthesia. During the examination we will chart any abnormalities or concerns regarding your pet’s oral health.
Cleaning your pet's teeth is not only a cosmetic concern, tooth plaque contains bacteria that can infect gum tissue and the roots of teeth, which can result in oral disease and tooth loss. Bacteria can enter the blood stream through large blood vessels located near the gums and teeth, this bacteria travels to the organs with the highest blood flow; the lungs, heart, kidneys, brain and the liver, causing infections that can shorten your pet's life.
Whereas the pets react emotionally to the conditions of the environment, people and other animals, we use music therapy (use of music and its elements with the goal of establishing positive physical, social and mental changes) as well as homeopathic remedies (Bach flowers) in order to reduce agitation and enhance concentration.
