If your dog is in Stages one or two, he might be a candidate for Non Anesthesia Dental. If he is on stage 3 or 4 he needs to visit a vet as soon as possible.


Why should your dog get a deep teeth cleaning?

Dental Disease in dogs can lead to: 

  • Mouth pain or problems chewing food
  • Tooth Loss
  • Diabetes
  • Heart Disease
  • Liver Disease
  • Kidney Disease
  • Respiratory Disease
  • Weakened Immune System

Dental care is very important to our pet’s health and is usually overlooked by most pet owners. Without proper care, teeth and gums can become infected and lead to more serious disorders. If your pet is at Stage 1 you can continue brushing their teeth on a routine basis to prevent periodontal disease. If your pet is at a Stage 2 or 3 then they are in need of a full dental. A dental under anesthesia can cost anywhere from $200-$1000. If your pet is not a candidate for anesthesia due to their health or cost is an issue you can try an anesthesia free dental cleaning with V.I.C. Pet Care. We not only offer dog teeth cleaning anesthesia free, we also offer cat  and anesthesia free dog dental cleaning


What does a dog dental cleaning includes?

Anesthesia Free Ultrasonic Cleaning

The dental treatment includes: cleaning, scaling, brushing, polishing and antibacterial rinse.

Benefits include: anesthesia free/no risk, reduced cost, and no recovery time needed. Great for preventative care. 

  • Step 1Dental Cleaning: Scaling removes tartar and build-up from your pet’s teeth above and below the gumline.
  • Step 2Polishing: Polishing will smooth the surface and decrease the adhesive ability of plaque.
  • Step 3Subgingival Wash: The scaling and polishing of the teeth can cause debris to become trapped in the gums. To prevent any chance of infection we gently flush the gingiva with an antibacterial solution once the dental has been performed.

  • $45 for dental consult
  • $175 dental cleaning (includes consult)
