Anesthesia-free Teeth Cleaning

Cowtown Canines is now offering anesthesia free teeth cleaning. We always recommend that you discuss all medical/dental care with your veterinarian prior to scheduling an appointment for teeth cleaning. We began offering this service because it was being requested by so many of our regular clients. As always Brittany recommends that you please educate yourself on the dental cleaning process and the difference between the several cleaning/treatment processes!

Anesthesia-free dental cleaning for dogs is a safe, gentle, and affordable way to have your pet’s teeth cleaned. The anesthesia-free cleaning procedure involves manual scaling of all exposed surfaces of the teeth (including the tongue-side surfaces) and of the gingival sulcus (the crevice between the tooth and the gum), as well as polishing of exposed enamel.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How Do You Do It?
    For our large and giant breed dogs Brittany sits in the floor with your dog placed between her legs. She uses her legs to hold them still. For smaller dogs they are placed in her lap (sometimes wrapped in a towel) and tradtionally craddled with one arm. Brittany then uses one hand to control the mouth and expose the teeth. Then the other hand is used to scale the teeth.
  • How Long Does It Take?
    Anesthesia Free Teeth Cleaning usually takes between 25-45 minutes. This is all based on how much tarter is on your dogs teeth and how cooperative the dog is being.
  • How Much Does It Cost?
    Anesthesia Free Teeth Cleaning starts off at $75.00 and goes up to $100.00. We base this on how long it takes to complete the procedure and how cooperative the dog is.

Valuable Information from TCAP’s Website

Proper dental care can add three to five years to your pet’s life. By the age of three, some 80% of all dogs and 70% of all cats show signs of dental disease, which can lead to the more serious problems of heart, lung, and kidney disease.  The sooner you have it treated by your veterinarian (and learn to care for it yourself), the sooner your pet can stay on the road to health as well as smell good!

Periodontal disease is an infection of  the gum tissue by bacteria. Plaque and tartar form naturally when food remains in the cracks of the teeth, especially at the gum line. Canned food sticks easier, so it is more likely to cause plaque. At this stage the plaque is still soft, and brushing or chewing hard food and toys can remove it. If it is left to spread, plaque can lead to gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums, causing them to become red and swollen and painful.

Plaque soon hardens into tartar that separates the tooth from the gum. If the plaque and tartar build up continue, an infection can form at the root of the tooth. This is the most advanced stage, showing up as loose teeth, bleeding gums and pain anytime your pet tries to eat.

Periodontal disease can be prevented and treated. The keys to your pet’s oral health are professional veterinary dental care and good care at home.
