CANINE TEETH CLEANING

At Call of the Wild, we make sure your dog is in a safe, calm environment in our teeth cleaning clinic.

We do not have 3rd party companies come to our shop to provide teeth cleaning.  We physically have a teeth cleaning clinic here at our shop and the owners are fully trained and will administer the cleaning.
3 Reasons why you should have your
dogs teeth cleaned

 

If plaque is left on your dog’s teeth, it will harden and turn into tartar. It only takes a few days or less for plaque to become tartar, which is why daily brushing is a must. Tartar, also referred to as calculus, is a dark buildup on your dog’s teeth and gumline. 

 

Tartar Build-up can be painful and can cause inflamed gums quickly. As tartar builds up, it gives bacetrai places to hide.

Removes tartar build-up

Removes plaque build-up

Plaque is the sticky film that builds up on both yours’ and your dog’s teeth. This sticky film is made up of bacteria, and it begins when the food dogs eat stays on their teeth. If not cleaned off, these bacteria begin to grow. The more bacteria that grows on your dog’s teeth, the more at risk they are of developing a dental condition.

Prevents Bad Breathe

Prevents bad breathe and improves gum health! If a whiff of your dog's breath makes your nose hairs curl, it's time for some good dental care. When your dog has a healthy mouth and healthy dog teeth, bad breath won't be a problem.

BEFORE & AFTER
  • How do you keep my dog calm?
    We provide a quiet, calm and relaxing environment for your dog. We use a Hompathic Calming Spray (Lavender Rose Calming Pet Spray – The Simple Pet Company) as well as play soft spa like music. We also provide head and face massage as well as a belly rub (if they enjoy one). Many of the dogs will fall asleep during the procedure. Call us if you feel you need to speak to us further.
  • Can I watch you while you clean my pet's teeth?
    Cleanings will be done out of sight from pet owners as this causes a distraction for the dog and they are usually calmer when the owner is not around.
  • How effective is teeth cleaning?
    We do our best to scale the tooth service under the gum line. We will not work on loose or wiggly teeth. If the plaque/tartar build up is severe, you would have to make an appointment with your vet. We do not diagnose diseases, pull teeth or perform X-Rays, these services are performed by your veterinarian.
  • Is my dog awake during teeth cleaning?
    Yes your dog is awake during this service and this is why we provide a relaxing environment for them so they feel at ease.
  • What equipment do you use?
    Hand scales to keep the noise level to a minimum to keep your furry friend calm and relaxed.
  • Do you sterilize your instruments?
    Absolutely! Instruments are sterilized and ready to use fresh for each dog.
  • How often should I clean my pets teeth?
    Just like us, every 6 months is recommended. When you come in, we will confirm this once we have a look at your dogs teeth.
  • Are old dogs that have health issues candidates for anesthetic-free teeth cleaning?
    Yes! As long as there are no serious dental disease and/or loose teeth in your dog’s mouth that would inhibit us from doing the cleaning. Anesthetic-free cleanings are a wonderful alternative for older pets, or ones with heart, kidney, liver, or respiratory issues who cannot handle general anesthesia.
  • Dogs that are not candidates
    No, there are some dogs who are not candidates for our services. These pets usually have dental disease and/or fractured teeth and/or loose teeth. Some pets have behaviors/temperaments that are not a good fit for this procedure and it will be recommended your pet see the Veterinarian for a teeth cleaning. We are aware of our limitations and can easily recognize these issues in your dog and will discuss with you what is best for your doggie.
