Not only does it have beautiful images from her own Papillons, she also just posted a few of my new Web Graphics Paps.

Small Dog Non- Anesthetic Dental Cleaning, Ultrasonic Scaling & Polishing

I recently had posted this article on this blog, concerning regular teeth cleaning routines for our small friends.

And someone left a valuable message related to this article:
"we've had excellent results from non-anesthetic teeth cleaning available through our vet".
Yes, these wonderful options are available in bigger cities, at various parts in the USA.
I advise you to seek these veterinarian services out in your area.
But I also do want to point out that you make sure to go to a licensed veterinarian. As I researched this procedure, I stumbled over plenty of complaints, and health problems, when pet owners did not seek a licensed establishment.
Here are some articles you may want to click on and read before you decide:

Papillons are great Dancers

Papillon, Phalene Dogs, Toy Breeds & routine Teeth cleaning, Tooth Scaling

Often I hear that a Papillon owner looses their beloved pet over a routine teeth cleaning (tooth scaling) during the anesthesia.
I had numerous puppy buyers in my years of Papillon breeding, who came to buy a puppy because their previous dog , even younger dogs, did not wake up from their given anesthesia.

Papillon, Phalenes and other Toy Breeds are among those who require special monitoring while under an anesthetic because their blood pressure drops too quickly or their heart function becomes impaired.

I encourage you to teach your small dog to except a toothbrush, and offer him dental chews, and rawhide bones often.

Road's End Papillon Moms

Papillon Moms getting their hair slowly back. Most of my moms get stripped post pregnancy/delivery, and they are getting puppy food along with their babes, instead of regular adult food. Puppy food has a slightly higher protein content, which is needed for hair growth.
