Non-Anesthetic Dentals are performed each month at Brookside Animal Hospital. Please call to schedule and appointment for your pet. You may need to bring your pet in for a consultation to see if he or she is eligible.
In addition to traditional dentistry performed under anesthesia, we provide anesthesia free dental care to dogs and cats. The 7 step professional teeth cleaning is performed without the use of anesthesia, which offers pet owners an alternative method for cleaning and maintaining their pet's teeth. Complete dental care combines regular Veterinary cleaning maintenance and dental home care.
Imagine how your teeth would look and feel if you didn't brush them daily. The same applies to your pet's teeth. Bad breath and staining are unappealing, but many pet owners aren't aware that these symptoms may be signs of serious gum disease. Unless you provide some form of regular dental care, you are neglecting an important factor in the overall health of your pet. Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common health concerns of pets today.
The problem begins when plaque and tartar build up on your pet's teeth. Plaque contains bacteria that can infect gum tissue and the roots of teeth resulting ingingivitis, pain, and tooth loss. In addition to the negative impact on oral health, bacteria can enter the bloodstream through blood vessels near the teeth and gums. Organs most susceptible to infections include: lungs, heart, kidneys, liver and even the brain.
Patience and a gentle calm way with animals allow the dental technicians to gain the complete trust and confidence of your pet allowing a thorough teeth cleaning.
