Maintaining a healthy mouth is essential to your pet’s wellness and is a quality of life issue—for both pet and owner. Pets stay healthier with periodic dental cleaning and even a daily home brushing does not remove everything. Most vets agree that most cats and dogs over the age of three have some degree of periodontal disease. Houndstooth dental hygienists have more than 25 years of experience of cleaning the teeth of companion dogs and pets, and have cleaned more than half a million mouths, without anesthesia. They are offering a local dental clinic at Holistic Veterinary Healing, in Germantown. Appointments, required for the 15-to-20-minute procedure. Appointments are available January 13 and 14 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; January 15 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and April 13 through 15 and 22 from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
In severe cases or if the pet requires extractions, the pet is referred to a veterinary dental specialist, so that those procedures can be done under anesthesia. Locally, Holistic Veterinary Healing is one of very few clinics that offers this service for your pets.
The price range is from $210 to $250. Location: 12627 Wisteria Dr., Ste. C & D, Germantown, MD. For more information, visit HoundstoothPetDental.com or HolisticVeterinaryHealing.com. To schedule an appointment, call 240-715-6570.
