Benefits of Anesthesia-free Cat Teeth Cleaning
Anesthesia-free cat teeth cleaning has the same benefits as canine teeth cleaning. Tartar build up on a cat’s teeth can damage the gums, which can lead to inflammation, infection, and disease.
How Anesthesia-free Cat Teeth Cleaning Works
We use the same method for cats as we do with small dogs. We use a small towel and wrap them up in a cozy cocoon. This method keeps their legs away from their face, and it helps them relax. Being wrapped in this way helps calm pets be cause of the sensation of being swaddled; you may have heard of Thunder Shirts, which use the same principle of swaddling.
Once the cat is snuggled in, we hand-scale the teeth. Tartar is scraped off the teeth, inside and out, and then the teeth are hand polished. We use a soft roll of cotton to hold open the cat’s mouth in order to remove tartar from the inside of the mouth. We use our hands to hold back the lips in order to reach the very back teeth. In this way, we are able to reach all the teeth to remove the tartar.
