Holistic Vets: Dr. Mahaney Covers Dental Health for Pets

Screen Shot 2016-02-12 at 6.56.28 AMWhat kind of daily home dental care do you provide? I brush my dog Cardiff's teeth every night. Yes, every night. I dip the bristles of a toothbrush into the liquid from DentAcetic wipes. I then follow up by using a DentAcetic wipe. This combination, especially the toothbrush aspect, has kept Cardiff's teeth cleaner than just wiping alone and prevented him from needing a dental cleaning with or without anesthesia. In this episode of Holistic Vets, Tracie Hotchner and I cover dental health, the need for x-rays, when to seek out a specialist, and the fact that in California it is illegal for a groomer to perform “anesthesia-free dental cleaning”(only a veterinarian or certified vet technician can).
