No anesthesia required for animal dental care

Dental cleanings for dogs and cats don’t have to be traumatic experiences. Now pet owners can have their pets’ teeth cleaned without anesthesia, according to Aaron Taylor, manager of the Cache Meadow Veterinary Clinic.

Taylor learned about animal dental care from California and was impressed when he saw a demonstration.

“The technicians have been highly trained in pressure points in animals,” Taylor explains. “They use touch, they use vocal tones in their voice and there is no fighting with an animal. There is no tying down.

“There is no restraint with an animal. It’s simply amazing.”

Taylor says it works very well 97 percent of the time and is healthier because anesthesia can be a risk for the kidneys, especially with older animals. Taylor says animal dental care will be at his clinic on September 18 and anyone wanting an appointment can call to arrange it.
