We are now offering our mobile oral health service using the Emmi Pet Ultrasonic Toothbrush
The Emmi-pet 100% Ultrasound Toothbrush does not function like conventional or electric toothbrushes which use mechanical friction. It utilizes the characteristics of cutting edge ultrasound which does the cleaning with no brushing required.
Ultrasound technology has already been used for many decades with success in medicine. Using ultrasound for oral hygiene is absolutely harmless for animals. Ultrasound waves are air waves. The Emmi-pet 100% Ultrasound Toothbrush functions with an output of only 0.2 watt.
The emmi-pet is certified by the specialised department for animal husbandry and animal welfare (FFT) in Austria as an animal protection oriented product.
Peridontal disease is a progressive condition that if left untreated can have detrimental effects on your pets oral health.
The reasons why we like the emmi pet toothbrush:
- It combats gingivitis and periodontitis
- Fights oral cavity diseases
- Prevents and removes tartar and plaque build up
- Ideal for elderly dogs that cannot have an anaesthetic
- Ideal as a preventive treatment for puppies and young dogs who have not yet developed excessive plaque and tartar
- Cleans gums up to 12 mm deep with gentle ultrasound waves, no brushing necessary
- Non invasive
- Completely silent
- No anaesthetic or sedation is needed
- Used regularly it is a preventative treatment for teeth and gum disease
As a veterinary nurse I have seen many cases of dental problems which could have been prevented by maintaining a regular and consistent dental protocol. Our new service will be focussing on the following:
- Advice and guidance on how to maintain a realistic toothbrushing routine for your pet
- maintaining your pets oral health using the emmi pet toothbrush
- Follow up sessions after the initial session
- Referral to a veterinary surgeon if problems are identified
Having performed many dentals (Scales & Polishes) under anaesthesia I am experienced in identifying a range of problems that can occur within your pets mouth and have a robust understanding of pet dentition and hygiene. If a problem is idenitifed you will be referred to your veterinary surgeon as there are many conditions that will require a full veterinary workup. As a responsible pet owner it is our duty to ensure the welfare of our pets which includes dental hygiene.
Normal well maintained teeth and gums
Brushing is not just about removing the tartar from your pets teeth its about assessing the state of your pets gums as well, again as a veterinary nurse I will be able to give your advice and guidance.
Poor dental hygiene demonstrating build up of tartar
It will normally be neccesary to repeat the sessions to achieve a realistic outcome
If your pets teeth have a severe amount of tartar build up it would be advisable to have them scaled and polished by your local veterinary practice BEFORE starting ultrasonic teeth cleaning.
