Anesthesia Free Animal Dentist to Hold Pet Dental Clinic Benefiting German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Aug. 19, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Animal Dental Care, the mobile vet dentist group, will be providing anesthesia-free pet dental care at Tustana Animal Hospital in Tustin on Sunday, August 19, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Each appointment costs $95.00 and lasts for about 30 minutes. Part of the proceeds will be donated to German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County. Cleaning slots are expected to fill quickly, so pet owners should call 714-974-7762 to schedule their appointments. The mobile, anesthesia free animal dentist group travels to veterinary clinics throughout California and other states to clean pets' teeth without drugs or anesthesia.
The Animal Dental Care staff says that they are excited about the Anesthesia-Free Pet Dental Cleaning Clinic Day. "The vast majority of pets have never had their teeth brushed, or had any professional pet dental care, so about 85% percent of them have periodontal disease. This not only causes pain and tooth loss—it can actually cause bacterial infections that damage the liver, kidneys, heart and lungs. Our service checks and cleans our patients' teeth while helping out special dogs in trouble," says a member of the staff.
The animal dental facility says that pet owners should be aware of the warning signs of gum disease in animals. Bad breath is a tell-tale sign of gum disease, as is a yellowish-brown tartar crust staining the teeth. Swollen, red gums, or bleeding gums are also a sign. Pets with periodontal disease may also have difficulty eating or drinking because they are in pain. Loose teeth and teeth falling out indicate fairly advanced disease. He warns pet owners that a pet may still suffer from periodontal disease without any of these symptoms present, and that a professional pet dental care appointment is necessary to diagnose it.
The anesthesia free animal dentist from Animal Dental Care will assess each pet's dental condition and provide cleaning and polishing, as well as advice on a home dental hygiene regimen for pets. Pet care experts say a pet's teeth should be brushed daily to remove plaque. Otherwise this plaque can accumulate and harden into tartar, which can harbor damaging bacterial growth. They also recommend annual professional pet dental cleanings to catch warning signs of any problems.
According to the dental care team, pet dentistry is a pet care essential. "Imagine how you would feel if you never brushed your teeth. Pets feel the same way and suffer the same problems. We look forward to seeing all pet owners for Anesthesia-Free Pet Dental Cleaning Clinic Day."
