WHY SHOULD I CLEAN MY PETS TEETH?
Teeth care should be considered an extension of care in the grooming process and overall pet care. We all want to do our best for our fur babies.
HOW CAN I TELL IF MY PET'S TEETH NEED CLEANING?
Look for brown or yellow build-up on teeth. If you are unsure, we can check plaque for you and then book you an appointment as needed.
DOES MY PET FEEL ANY PAIN OR DISCOMFORT?
Your animal will not experience any pain. We are scaling off plaque just like you humans have experienced.
HOW DO YOU GET THE ANIMAL TO STAY CALM?
We rely on our ‘pet-whispering’ skills to establish a trusting relationship with each animal and at the same time use gentle relaxation techniques, which allow the pet to feel safe and comfortable. Even fussy pets with challenging personalities are usually very cooperative. On the rare occasion, but it does happen, some may even fall asleep.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We opt to hand scale your pets teeth keeping the noise level to a minimum.
DO WE USE STERILE TOOL?
Yes, we have a sterile kit of tools we use for the day for each individual animal. At the end of the day we sterilize our tools in a chlorhexidine solution.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY PET'S TEETH?
As part of regular grooming and pet care it’s best to have your pets teeth cleaned every 6 months.
PETS WHO ARE NOT CANDIDATES
Pets with oral health issues are always referred to your veterinarian for treatment. Pets who are known biters and aggressive personalities are not eligible.
HOW EFFECTIVE IS THIS METHOD?
Although we manually scale teeth’s surface and under the gum line there are circumstances where we might not be able to remove your pet’s tartar. We do not diagnose diseases, pull teeth or X-Rays, these services are left to veterinarians.
