Ensure your pet’s teeth are in great condition by visiting our team today
The dental needs of your pets are very similar to your own. Without regular brushing and the right type of diet, your animals will also suffer from bad breath, the build-up of tartar and, eventually, serious infection.
Treatments we offer range from the simple de-scaling and polishing of teeth to extensive work involving a number of tooth extractions. Any dental work needs your pet to be treated while under a general anaesthetic so it’s well worth helping your pets keep their mouths healthy for as long as possible.
“Since it’s generally older pets which need dental work, we often advise they have a blood sample taken to check they’ll be able to tolerate the general anaesthetic. The liver and kidneys process the drugs used in anaesthesia so we check how well they’re working to assess the risk to your pet..”
Dental chews are popular treats with many pets, and hide chews and even some chew toys can all help keep tartar away by rubbing against the teeth and gums. Special oral gels and varieties of pet toothpaste are also available to help keep pets’ teeth healthy. Don’t be tempted to use human toothpaste – the fluoride is toxic if swallowed.
We’ll keep an eye on your pet’s teeth when ever they come in for appointments but you should also look out for warning signs they may have dental disease. Clues include your pet having bad breath, demonstrating difficulty when eating, reducing the amount they groom and even pawing at their mouth.
