Perhaps the American Veterinary Medical Association chose February for dog parents to deep clean their pups choppers because everyone has given up on their human New Year's Resolutions?! Whatever the case, February is National Pet Dental Health Month — it's a yearly reminder for dog parents to pay attention to their dog's dental health and schedule a deep cleaning if necessary!
Non-anesthetic Dental Cleaning for Dogs
Deep dental cleaning without using sedatives has been trending over the recent years for lots of good reasons. Dog parents can be wary about putting their pets under anesthesia for dental care, especially senior pets. Sedated cleanings also cost more. Here are the top 5 reasons to consider a non-anesthetic cleaning for your dog this February:
1. No medications or sedation required.
2. No side effects.
3. No recovery time.
4. Reduces bad breath.
5. Helps maintain proper dental health.
Technicians utilize the latest techniques and gentle holding positions, which calm and relax the patient throughout the procedure, to obtain excellent results without stressing out you or your pet.
The path you take to your pet's dental wellness is up to you! And it's always best to start early, but never too late to slow damage or reduce bacteria. Until our pups can brush their own teeth, looks like it's up to us!
