Dental Care

Dental care for your pet is as important as for yourself

Dental care for your pet is as important as for yourself. We recommend regular check-ups of teeth and gums for all pets.

Most dental disease is avoidable and bad breath is not normal: it usually indicates a build-up of tartar, with associated infection and gum disease, which can cause discomfort and pain. Ultimately, serious gum disease will lead to wholesale loss of teeth. Whilst dental decay (caries) is rare in cats and dogs, a build-up of tartar on the teeth is inevitable and dental treatment will be required sooner or later in most animals. We are well equipped to provide a range of dental services, including ultrasonic cleaning, polishing, x-ray investigations and extractions under general anaesthesia. We also stock a range of products to help in the prevention of further dental problems.
