We've extended our dental special to the end of March! If you make an appointment this month, you'll save 15% on all our dental services, including pre-anesthetic lab work. But what about after your pet's teeth cleaning? You'll want to follow up with a proper dental care routine to keep those teeth as squeaky clean as possible.
Here are some of the dental products we recommend:
Toothpastes, Toothbrushes, Finger Brushes
Ideally your pet's teeth should be brushed daily using a toothbrush and toothpaste specifically made for pets only. We sell a variety of flavored toothpastes, including poultry, beef, and seafood. They're safe to ingest and can be used on both cats and dogs. After your pet's dental cleaning, you may want to wait two weeks before brushing your pet's teeth. If there are extractions, for example, they will need time to heal. Our veterinarians and staff will advise you on when is the best time to start.
C.E.T Oral Hygiene Rinse
If brushing your pet's teeth is too difficult, you may want to look into using an oral rinse. The one we sell at our clinic contains Chlorhexidine (an antiseptic), is safe to ingest, and will help to freshen breath and decrease bacteria in your pet's mouth.
C.E.T Dental Chews
Available at Good Sam for both cats and dogs, these treats are coated with enzymes and antiseptics to help prevent dental disease. Please take care to supervise your pet while chewing to prevent choking or obstruction. Remove the chew if you notice your pet trying to swallow a large portion.
Hill's Prescription Diet t/d
A prescription diet called t/d is available for purchase at Good Sam and may be recommended depending on your pet's degree of dental disease. Dental diets have been formulated to help minimize tartar build-up.
