Valley Center Vet Clinic

Compassionate Pet Care

Top Rated Local® Veterinarian


Otherwise known as “NADS” this approach to teeth cleaning avoids anesthesia and may use light sedation instead. Pets have their teeth scaled and polished while awake. Your pet must be first be examined by the veterinarian to determine if your pet qualifies for a non-anesthetic cleaning.

Advantages of NADS:

  • No anesthesia gas used
  • More affordable
  • Ideal for high risk who can’t undergo anesthesia

Disadvantages of NADS:

  • Can not perform full oral exam
  • Can not clean below the gum line (where much disease is found)
  • Only friendly (non-biting) pets are considered
  • Requires more repeat cleanings (every 3 months)
  • Can not extract loose or broken teeth

Please come right over in the event of a pet emergency. Our technicians will assess the nature of the emergency and determine if we can initiate treatment or transfer to a 24 hour medical facility. We can treat the vast majority of emergency cases on-site.

With advance notice, we can schedule convenient appointments at your home. We can take the hastle out of the experience by performing pet examinations on your property. This exceptional service was created to assist the elderly with large breed older dogs, owners with very scared cats.
