How to Brush Your Cat's Teeth -With Dr. Waugh and her cat, Sunshine


How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth (Large Dog)-With Dr. Waugh and her dog Bosco, the Labrador

Brushing Teeth on a Large Dog

Please note the following:

  1. Bosco was very well trained when this video was done. Do not attempt to brush all of the teeth the first time!
  2. If your dog has periodontal disease, or other oral problems, brushing may cause pain. In that case, DO NOT BRUSH!! Have the mouth treated by your veterinarian first.
  3. Training the average dog from "never having brushed the teeth" to "brushing the outside of the teeth confidently" takes about 3 weeks. Remember, you are training yourself as much as you are training your dog, when it is the first time for both of you.
  4. You will feel very awkward at first. That's OK. Go with it, and you will be fine.
  5. When you are feeling confident in your brushing technique on the outside of the mouth, start doing the inside of the mouth
  6. Your dog will come to enjoy having the teeth brushed and will expect you to do it. Do not let your dog down! :)
  7. Now, give yourself a pat on the back. By brushing the teeth you are bonding more closely with your dog, can enjoy the lack of odor from your pets mouth, will have a healthier dog who will live a longer, more pain-free life, and can proudly consider yourself a member of an elite group of dog lovers!

How to Brush Your Dog's Teeth (Brachycephalic dog)-With Angie, a veterinary technician and her dog, Pugsley the pug

How to Tube Feed A Cat With An Esophagostomy Tube 
This is an instructional video on how to feed a cat via an esophagostomy tube. The cat in this video had all of her teeth extracted due to severe periodontal disease. We are able to feed, give water and medicate the cat easily while the mouth is healing. The esophagostomy tube is left in place for a minimum of 7 days and can be left for several weeks to months. The length of time the tube is left in place is dependent on when the cat starts eating on her own. Your cat will be able to eat while the esophagostomy tube is in place. We send home detailed instructions with owners on how to tube feed their cat and how to make the cat food liquid diet. We also created this video to help as a visual guide for clients and veterinarians on how to feed a cat with an esophagostomy tube. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us!
How to Tape An Esophagostomy Tube 
This is a detailed video on how to tape in (or re-tape) an esophagostomy tube in place. This video was made both for referring veterinarians and for clients who have a pet with a feeding tube.
