Three times a year we provide a service known as Houndstooth Dental Cleaning that is an express dental cleaning for your pet. Our veterinarians evaluate your pet’s periodontal state and determine if he/she is a candidate. If your pet has a very early or mild form of dental disease, this option may be discussed with you. Top candidates would be:
– minor to mild periodontal disease
– a pet that that has a high anesthetic risk making a full dental an impossibility
– a situation where a more economical and much less time consuming option is needed
The Houndstooth cleaning can be done while you wait and usually takes between 15-30 minutes. This is an invaluable service that addresses early periodontal disease in a quick, non-invasive manner. If a larger dental problem is identified while the teeth are bring cleaned, it can be addressed after the cleaning has been completed.
