Why your dog needs Routine Dental Cleaning

Imagine how your teeth would look and feel if you didn’t brush them daily. The same applies to your pets’ teeth. Bad breath and stained teeth can indicate serious gum disease. Without regular dental care, you neglect an important aspect of your pet's health. While dental care under general anaesthesia is an option, it carries risks, especially for older dogs or those with health issues.

Our anaesthesia-free dental service is suitable for dogs who exhibit any of the following:

  • Poor Kidney and/or Liver function (detected with a blood test)
  • Congenital heart defects (including murmurs), impaired heart function (such as congestive heart failure) or arrhythmia
  • A recent injury or infection of any kind (including skin infections, "hot spots" are good cause to delay scheduling any procedure that requires anaesthesia)
  • A history of seizures (some preanesthetic sedatives can lower the seizure threshold)

If your dog has these or other health concerns, anaesthesia-free dental care might be a good option. However, be aware that this procedure can be challenging for the dog and is less thorough than one performed under anaesthesia.

    Before proceeding with dental cleaning services, our dental specialist will need to conduct a mandatory dental consultation at $10 and assess the condition of your dog.
