See Form To Be Signed Below
Caroline and Jim (Kimo) Soper of Canine Smiles have offered Anesthesia Free Teeth Cleaning (AFTC) in the Austin area for over 16 years in addition to our grooming services please see (Perfectpoochgrooming.com). Canine teeth cleaning (scaling) can be accomplished to remove plaque and tartar build-up, without anesthesia, is dependent on our ability to train your dog to allow us to perform this procedure. AFTC involves training your dog to relax in a calm environment using our step-by-step proprietary behavioral techniques, developed over many years. It is important to consider that humans learn to tolerate routine teeth cleaning procedures without anesthesia and most dogs (approx. 95%), because of their excellent learning ability, can as well.
Tartar buildup can result in advanced periodontal disease with its subsequent degradation of a dog's overall health. AFTC is not appropriate for dogs who already have dental disease this often requires work that cannot be accomplished while they are awake, such as dental x-rays, tooth extractions, etc. After such corrections are made by your veterinarian, the AFTC procedure may be performed in the future prior to advanced onset of periodontal disease. Your veterinarian must examine your dog and sign the AFTC authorization form on this page annually.
