Did you know your pet doesn’t always need anesthesia to get their teeth cleaned?

An NAD (non-anesthetic dental) cleaning is a safe and effective way to keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy without the use of anesthesia. At our veterinary practice, we are proud to offer this innovative service to our clients.

Benefits of NAD dental cleaning include:

Don’t neglect your pet’s dental health. See if your pet qualifies for an NAD cleaning today and give your pet the gift of a healthy smile.

  • No need for anesthesia, which eliminates the risk of complications
  • A more comfortable experience for your pet
  • No fasting required before the procedure
  • Same-day results, allowing for early detection and treatment of dental issues
  • Cost-effective compared to traditional dental cleaning methods

Is your pet’s bad breath causing a rift between you both?

Contrary to popular belief, stinky breath isn’t something that pet parents simply must learn to live with. In fact, it’s likely a sign that your pet needs to visit the dentist. 

Without adequate care, your companion’s mouth can become a haven for bacteria, which can spread through the bloodstream and cause a number of other health problems. Left untreated, dental disease can even shorten the time you get to share together. 

The good news is, with support from the Heron Lakes Animal Hospital team, this can all be prevented.

Our professional dentistry services include both routine, preventative care as well as advanced treatment for existing oral conditions. 

Common signs of dental disease in companion animals include, but are not limited to:

  • Bad breath
  • Excessive drooling
  • Dropping food 
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Loss of appetite
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Gums that are red, swollen or bleeding

If your dog or cat is showing any of these signs, it’s time to schedule an exam. We’ll identify the problem and address it quickly, improving the prognosis for your loved one. We’ll also show you ways to keep your pet’s teeth and gums healthy and disease-free year-round. 

You deserve to enjoy lots of close snuggles and cuddles with your pet. The comprehensive dental services at Heron Lakes Animal Hospital can help get you there!
