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.
