DENTISTRY:


How much do you know about your pet's teeth? Sadly, many pet owners don't think about their pet's teeth often enough with the result that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats suffer from dental disease by the age of 3 years old.

The most obvious sign to a pet owner is bad breath. Other clinical signs include plaque and tartar build up, reddened gums or gingivitis, excessive salivation, chattering teeth and difficulty chewing food. Dental disease has been associated with heart, liver and kidney disease and it is well documented that adequate dental care can add up to 4 years to your pet’s life. We provide the highest quality dental care available, utilising dental equipment similar to what you would find at a human dentist. Under a general anaesthetic, your pet’s teeth, gums and mouth are thoroughly examined, the plaque and tartar is removed & the teeth polished.
