A Note From Dr. Rachel...

Hi! I'm Rachel. I'm a small animal veterinarian in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, CA, with my family and my dog Mamacita-- that's her with me in the photo!

I am passionate about quality dental care in dogs and cats. 80% or more of my patients have some level of dental or periodontal disease, and it's my goal to reduce that number! I routinely recommend that my patients have their teeth brushed on a daily basis, but I find that it can be a little overwhelming for their people. My studies at the Academy for Dog Trainers and participation in their Husbandry Project inspired me to make this course to help my clients (and you!) achieve their dental hygiene goals with their pets.
