Dentistry

  Back

It is estimated that 85% of all adult pets will experience some kind of dental problem during their lives.

Imagine if you had never brushed your teeth, or never visited your dentist? Well for some pets this is reality, and that is when problems can begin.

Plaque build upon teeth can form tartar, which in turn can lead to irritation of the gums and possibly gingivitis.

Signs your pet may have dental problems may include:
  • bad breath
  • difficulty eating
  • unwillingness to groom
  • painful mouth
  • salivating

If dental treatment is needed the procedure would be carried out under a general anaesthetic.

A vet would clean all the plaque and tartar from the teeth and then would clean and polish them. This will slow the build up of plaque in the future.

If you are worried about your pet's teeth or would like some dental advice, contact either of our surgeries for a free dental check with one of our nurses.

So how can you help take care of your pet's teeth at home more?

  • Good diet will help to keep the teeth cleaner and stronger.
  • Daily brushing of the teeth stops the plaue developing.
  • use of other products like dentagen chews to prevent plaque or LEBA 3 to break down tarter  are also beneficial

Our staff will advise you on the best options that you have in helping to care for your pets teeth and our nurses run free dental clinics where you can bring your pet in to have their dental health assessed and plan the best way of looking after them.
