Yes. It is true. There is such a service as anesthesia free dental cleaning for pets. If you have had your pet’s teeth cleaned in the past, you might have had a bit of hesitation due to the necessity of anesthesia. Or, your pet might be up in age and never had his/her teeth cleaned.
I have to confess, both of my dogs are eight years old, and they have never had their teeth cleaned. Their teeth look pretty good though because they are fed a high quality diet, consume raw bones and we use dental cleaning products by Tropiclean.
It is important to keep your pet’s teeth and gums in tip top shape. By the age of three, pet’s can develop gingivitis which can lead to other diseases such as heart disease.
I met Dr. Kristen Swanson, a holistic vet hailing from Colorado, last week. She and her team came to my store, Wag, to perform anesthesia free dental cleaning. All I can say is…WOW, what a difference. The before and after of many of my four legged client’s teeth was amazing. All the dogs made great candidates for the procedure and their owners were happy.
Cost is $165, which is less than a typical pet dental cleaning with anesthesia and the service takes about 30 minutes. Dr. Swanson does recommend a holistic tincture to use after the cleaning whick kills bacteria and prevents infection. The cost of the tincture is $25. Visit K9 Dental Service to watch a demo video.
Wag’s next cleaning date is: Sunday, July 29. Call to reserve your space today: 813-258-9181.
