The Benefits of Proper Dental Care

By February 6, 2015Uncategorized

This is a guest post from our good friends at Nothing but the Tooth – specializing in anaesthesia free canine teeth cleaning

There are a number of benefits associated with a good canine oral care program. Some of them affect the overall health of the dog and determine how energetic they are. Other benefits may actually help prevent infections and associated medical treatment expenses. Many dogs show signs of gum disease by the age of four years unless a healthy oral care regime is adopted. 


Dogs are spared this intensive drug treatment, which can sometimes provoke or exacerbate existing health conditions. If your dog has undetected abdominal dysfunction, is more than 10 years old, or has a challenged respiratory system (as with pugs and boxers especially), he or she may not be the best candidate for anaesthetic procedures. Our method of teeth cleaning uses no anaesthesia and entails none of the associated risks.

Better Dog Breath:

Bad breath, or halitosis, is caused by bacteria, which can thrive in the plaque and tarter build-up on teeth. When the teeth are cleaned, so is the breath

Brilliant Teeth:
You will be as thrilled to see your own dog with asparkling white smile as your dog will be to feel his or her newly smooth, clean teeth.

Help Prevent Complications:

Plaque and tartar, and the associated bacteria, can be the gateway to internal or abdominal infections. In severe cases, treatment of such health issues can involve oral surgery, tooth extractions, and/or antibiotics with extended hospitalization of your pet. You can help reduce the risk of health complications from infected gums through regular, preventative teeth cleanings.

Hygienic and Professional:

We use high-grade instruments and sterile materials for each patient, and are careful to use the most hygienic practice standards possible. Patients are gently but securely cradled during the procedure to help them relax.
