“Why Does my pet need to be put under anesthesia to have teeth cleaned instead of just brushing them?”
When your pet needs a dental, unfortunately, brushing isn’t enough.
They must be given anesthesia to allow us to access to all sides of their teeth to thoroughly scale and polish.
Pets develop the same tough tartar we develop that our dentist scales from our teeth every 6-12 months.
Brushing can then be done by you for maintenance.
