Anesthesia-Free Dental & Vaccine Clinic

Wags & Wiggles offers dog dental care through Qualified Pet Dental at both Tustin and Rancho Santa Margarita locations. We took this venture very seriously. Their dog handling abilities and knowledge are top notch.

Qualified Pet Dental Clinics are supervised by a licensed veterinarian. Pet dental services offered without veterinarian supervision are unsafe and illegal.

Why should I have my dog's teeth cleaned?

Imagine how your teeth would look and feel if you didn't brush them daily! Periodontal (gum) disease is one of the most common conditions seen in pets today. Dog dental care is extremely important.

The problem begins when plaque and tartar build up on your pet's teeth. Plaque harbors bacteria, which can infect gum tissue and the roots of teeth resulting in disease and tooth loss.

Besides the obvious negative impact on oral health, bacteria can enter the bloodstream through the large blood vessels located near the gums and teeth. The organs with the highest blood flow are most susceptible to infections, including the lungs, heart, kidneys, liver, and brain. Damage to these organs caused by infection can shorten the lives of our pets.

What's the procedure like?

Qualified Pet Dental technicians are highly qualified to perform a thorough dental exam on your pet without the use of anesthesia.

Each dental treatment starts with a full physical exam. The doctor will assess your dog’s overall health and temperament and chart any concerns regarding your dog's oral health.

The next step is fully cleaning the teeth above and below the gum line, providing truly preventive dog dental care. They finish up with a polish of the teeth using a fluoride-based pumice.

When the treatment is complete, the doctor will return your pet and explain anything out of the ordinary that was identified during the exam.

What if my dog is nervous?

Pet comfort is a requirement of effective treatment. Like many humans, dogs can get a little anxious when the dental equipment comes out!

During their training, Qualified Pet Dental hygienists learn and perfect animal calming techniques. This grants them the ability to put a nervous dog at ease within minutes and to keep it that way throughout the treatment.

They also practice specially-developed holding techniques that secure the animal without pain, allowing safe access to the teeth and gums.

Does my dog have to attend daycare the day of?

We strongly recommend your dog attends daycare the day of the dog dental care procedure. Your dog will get to have some fun beforehand and will be more relaxed. However, it is only required that your dog is present at the time of your appointment. If your dog is boarding, no problem! The procedure can still be done.
