Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

Any dog or cat who does not require extractions or have advanced periodontal disease can be eligible for non-anesthetic cleanings. Pets of all ages from young pets needing their first prophy to senior pets whose age or health make them poor anesthetic candidates, high-risk breeds, and any pet whose guardian is resistant to anesthetizing. Our web site has many examples of dental conditions to help clients determine the eligibility of their pet.

Some pets are not candidates for this procedure. However, we have an extremely high success rate, even among pets assumed to be ineligible.

  • Pets who are dangerously aggressive or have advanced cognitive dysfunction are not eligible.
  • Pets with dental complications such as advanced periodontal disease, fractures, mobile teeth, lesions, etc., are referred to the veterinarian for treatment.
