Anaesthesia Free Dentistry


That ‘Anaesthesia – free dentistry’ procedures are a risk to your pet?

Some people are now advertising what they call ‘anaesthesia-free dentistry’. They offer to do ‘dentals’ or cleaning and scaling of pets’ teeth while the animal is fully conscious.

As a pet owner, please be aware that this is a serious risk because:

The animal must be physically restrained, which can lead to significant anxiety. As the animal is conscious, it will be fully aware of any pain involved in the procedure. The pain caused will be stressful at the time and can also lead to longer term anxiety and aversion to being touched around the face and muzzle.
