Improving your pet’s dental health is vital for their overall health. The bacteria and disease that thrives in your pet’s mouth can cause other health problems such as liver, heart or kidney problems, as well as significant discomfort and pain for your pet. Often owners are not aware of the extent of their pet’s dental disease.
How will I know if my pet needs dental treatment?
We include dental health assessment with your pet’s annual wellness check (often combined with their annual vaccination). Signs of dental disease can include:
- Bad breath
- Tartar build up (yellow or brown discoloration of the teeth)
- Red, inflamed gums
- Loose teeth
We can improve your pet’s dental health by undergoing dental treatment under general anaesthesia. If we determine your pet needs dental treatment, our veterinarians will give you an estimate for the procedure and book your pet in for a day-stay in hospital.
