attending veterinarian performs an examination on every pet prior
to the dental cleaning. This assures you that your pet is a candidate
for the non-anesthetic teeth cleaning procedure. In the event our
veterinarian finds your pet is NOT a candidate for the dental cleaning
at this time, you will be advised prior to the procedure. Our veterinarian
may refer your pet out after the procedure has begun if they note
an issue with oral health, general health, or deem your pet to be
a non-candidate due to the pet's demeanor.
dental cleaning your pet will be undergoing is very similar to your
own dental cleanings. Plaque and tartar are gently removed from
the inside and outside surfaces, the spaces between the teeth, and
from under the gum line. After the cleaning we polish with a
pumice-based paste and rinse with pet-specific chlorhexidine mouth

to start the cleaning process. Our hygienists are specifically trained
in the handling of pets and are able to keep them calm through the
entire cleaning procedure. Your pet will be constantly praised,
reassured, and handled with utmost care. Due to our expertise in
the handling and care of dogs and cats, only a small percentage
of pets cannot be treated by our non-anesthetic teeth cleaning methods.
We find that most pets cooperate perfectly while undergoing our

for dental cleanings are based on the level of gingivitis, tartar,
and plaque build-up.

percentage of dogs or cats cannot be cleaned. If we determine that
your pet is not a candidate during the examination, we may refer
you back to your regular veterinarian for further evaluation. Although
you may have been referred by your own veterinary hospital for the
non-anesthesia dental cleaning; not all pets will be candidates
for this procedure. Waggin Smiles' veterinarians will make the decision
