A consistent oral hygiene regimen and regular cleanings, including anesthetic and anesthesia-free procedures, help your furry friend’s teeth and mouth stay cleaner and can limit the risk of periodontal disease, which is linked to systemic diseases of the kidneys and liver, heart disease, and lung disease.
Sunvet offers anesthesia-free dental cleanings for dogs and cats once per month.
Non-anesthetic dental cleanings provide a non-invasive option for your 4-legged friend. These cleanings don’t require blood work or medication, which means there are no side effects or recovery time. Anesthesia-free cleanings are particularly helpful for senior dogs and cats that may be more susceptible to negative side effects of anesthesia. Sunvet is happy to help determine if your animal companion is the right fit for this service.
Our Commitment to Your Furry Family Members
We are committed to integrative veterinary approaches that are centered around the unique needs and dispositions of each individual insightful creature. Our dental technicians are trained to carefully identify body language that conveys pain, discomfort or stress, and will adjust to meet each patient’s needs. During the cleaning, our dental technician creates a calm, low-stress environment and uses specialized techniques to safely restrain dogs and cats.
- A screening is required prior to booking a dental cleaning appointment. Screenings are $65 with Dr. Laurel or $45 with a technician.
- If you are a *current client and have an existing appointment scheduled, the dental screening can be added free of charge (just give us a call and let us know!).
- New clients and patients must be screened by Dr. Laurel prior to scheduling a dental cleaning. Or the screening can be done free of charge during an initial one-on-one consultation. Learn more about becoming a new client.
*If you haven’t seen Dr. Laurel in over a year, you’ll need to schedule an exam or screening with Dr. Laurel in order to ensure the best care for your furry friend.
Before and After Photos from Happy Patients
Jacques is an adorable 13.5-year-old Jack Russell Terrier. His owner knew a dental cleaning was warranted for this sweet little dude since he had been diagnosed with grade 3 periodontal disease. However, she wanted to avoid the risks involved with using anesthesia on him due to his age and since he has had negative reactions to anesthesia in the past.
Noodle is a 6-year-old Maltese mix. She was a perfect candidate because of her gentle and trusting demeanor and her very mild tartar buildup.
