Question by Racheal with Boomer

Are you associated with a veterinary hospital


Answer

My service is not to be confused with procedures administered at the veterinary hospital, I am not a Veterinarian.


I am a Veterinary Technician with 20 years experience with dogs. My cosmetic teeth cleaning service is just professional with gentle, calm handling techniques, while your pet is awake


We encourage regular dental checks with your veterinarian.



Question by Ellen with Gizmo

 How are you able to keep the dog still for this service, especially since the dog is not given sedatives or anesthesia


Answer to Ellen with Gizmo

I provide a quiet, calm, gentle setting,  small dogs may be swaddled in a soft towel or blanket and laid in my lap or on their side, large dogs are placed in a sitting position close to me, with little restraint so your dog feels unthreatened.  Once again only using experience and  TLC!



Question by Blake and Andy

 What is it you do.

Answer to Blake and Andy

I cosmetically clean dog teeth , I use sharp, clean, sterile hand instruments, only intended for your dogs cleaning, any health or behaviour concerns will be recognized and handled professionally with any information that I need to know prior to starting a cleaning.  Oh yes, be assured ... rest periods are given to ensure your pet is not stressed the average session is 30 to 60 minutes, with tummy rubs and kisses in between!

If there is an underlying health concern, your pet should be seen by the veterinarian prior to a cleaning.
