Dog dental health
Just like your teeth, your pet’s need looking after too. The health of their teeth and gums has a significant impact on the overall quality of their life.
Dental disease can cause significant oral pain and tooth loss. Common signs of dental disease include:
- yellow-brown tartar around the gumline
- inflamed, red gums
- bad breath
- change in eating or chewing habits (especially in cats)
- pawing at the face or mouth
- excessive drooling
- pain or bleeding when you touch the gums or mouth.
Our experienced veterinarians can detect any dental issues in your pet in a normal consultation and can advise on the necessary treatment and prevention options available.
We offer free dental checks at any time via an appointment. At your appointment our veterinary team may make recommendations to you to improve the care of your pet’s teeth at home, thus reducing the need for more invasive dentistry in the future
During a dental scale and polish procedure, a patient is placed onto a drip and given a full general anaesthetic. From here the veterinary team will assess and chart the teeth. By charting the teeth we can determine the best plan to return your pet to a clean and healthy mouth.
Package prices for scale and polish procedures are available, estimates for more extensive work including the extraction of teeth are available on request.
