WHY SHOULD I CLEAN MY PET'S TEETH?
Just like human’s dogs and cats build plaque and calculus (tartar) on their teeth.

HOW CAN I TELL IF MY PET'S TEETH NEED CLEANING?
Look for brown or yellow build-up on the tooth and areas of inflammation around the gum area. Bad breath is often the first tell-tale sign of poor oral hygiene.
DOES MY PET FEEL ANY PAIN OR DISCOMFORT?
Your animal will not experience any pain. We use techniques proven to be painless.
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 our feisty pets with challenging personalities are usually very cooperative. Some may even fall asleep. We do not use any restraining tools or bite bars.

DO YOU POLISH?
Yes we polish the teeth to create a clean, smooth surface to prevent bacteria, tartar and calculus from quickly returning. Also staining of the teeth is reduced.

WHAT EQUIPMENT DO YOU USE?
We use manual tools to clean and polish.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I CLEAN MY PET'S TEETH?
On average pet‘s over 2 years old should have a professional cleaning every 3-6 months to 1 year depending on diet, age, health breed and home care.

WHICH PETS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR DentaPet's PROCEDURES?
  • cats and dogs of all breeds & ages
  • young pets needing their first visit
  • senior pets
  • pets with mild to heavy calculus and tartar
FEARFUL PETS
DentaPet has designed handling techniques that permit safe no sedation teeth cleaning to be performed on most pets.

PETS WHO ARE NOT CANDIDATES
Pets with oral health complications are referred to your veterinarian for treatment.  Pets who are known biters and aggressive personalities are not eligible.


We may not be able to remove all the tartar because of the following
  • Deep Pockets
  • Root Exposure
  • Excessive Wiggling
We do not pull teeth and we do not take X-Rays, so we can never see what is going on under the gum line. Remember an X-Ray will show if there is infection of the roots or the area around the root. If gum disease is present we will recommend an X-ray. If the enamel of a tooth is compromised we will recommend an X-ray. We believe small dogs should get yearly X-rays, because their teeth are so crowded it is very likely they have diseased roots. For larger dogs, If gum disease is present then we recommend yearly X-rays at the Vets.
