Today we focus on professional dental care. This episode is the third part of a three part dental series.
In today’s episode, Arloa and Dali discuss professional dental cleanings, what to look for in professional dental hygienists and dental veterinarians and the differences in anesthetic dental cleanings vs. non-anesthetic dental cleanings.
**When using a non-anesthetic dental hygienist, it is very important to get veterinary referrals! There are some great hygienists out there, but the industry is not well regulated so there are also some bad ones. The law in California states that performing dentistry on an animal constitutes the practice of veterinary medicine and needs to be done under the supervision of a veterinarian. Houndstooth was selected for this interview as they do work in conjunction with many veterinary offices.**
