Tina grew up on Vancouver Island where her family always had a lot of animals. She had horses, goats, bunnies, reptiles, and her mother operated a small petting zoo for educational tours for schools. Naturally, her love for animals grew strong from a very young age and she always knew that she would spend her life surrounded by them. After high school she took a course in grooming in Oak Bay. She worked as a groomer for four years before she became interested in animal oral hygiene. In May of 2006 Tina completed the K9 oral hygiene course offered at K9 Brite Bark in Victoria B.C. Since then she has helped thousands of happy clients and counting. Today she lives in Victoria with her husband and two children where she operates her anesthetic-free K9 and feline oral hygiene business throughout B.C. Tina sincerely loves what she does- helping people keep their dogs and cats happy and healthy for years to come with fresh breath and bright smiles.
Why Keep My Dog’s Teeth Clean?
Did you know that gum issues aren’t just a human health problem? Gum disease also affects cats and dogs. Just like humans, oral neglect can lead to more serious problems such as heart disease and organ failure. In fact, the more we learn about our four legged friends, the more we learn that oral care is equally important to our pets as it is to us. That means brushing and regular cleaning.
We understand that life is busy and it’s easy to forget about the little, but important, details. Don’t worry, we are here to help!
Good oral care can help your pet live a longer and healthier life. Bones and treats alone won’t keep your dog’s teeth healthy. Most domesticated pets need professional scaling, flossing and polishing to keep their teeth in prime shape. Dreaded “doggie breath” is usually the result of gas given off by bacteria that live in your pet’s mouth. The more bacteria your cat or dog has in his/her mouth, the more severe the odour. Consistent oral care will significantly reduce dreaded“doggie breath.”
Tina, our Pet Oral Hygiene Specialist, is the newest member of the The Pet Shop Boys and we are extremely excited to add her to our excellent team of holistic pet care specialists!
What is a Pet Oral Hygiene Specialist?
As a certified Pet Oral Hygiene Specialist, Tina is a member of the K90HA Organization based in Victoria BC. She is trained and certified in “sedation-fee” cleaning and preventative care for cats and dogs of all sizes and breeds. She uses the latest sonic technology to gently remove the plaque and polish without aggressively scraping your pet’s teeth. The benefits of this technique over conventional veterinary methods are numerous. This 100% natural and hygienic option bypasses the complication of a medical procedure. The procedure is quick, stress-free, worry-free, risk-free, and cost effective. In most cases we are able to clean your pet’s teeth in less than an hour and always without any side effects.
When you come in for your first appointment you will receive a free consultation to determine the condition of your pet’s teeth. She will chart and document any abnormalities and discuss with you the best oral hygiene routine for you and your pet.
Once your pet’s teeth are looking like a movie star, she will show you the right techniques to maintain that Hollywood smile with all natural, easy to use products.
