Good oral health is an important part of good general health for your pet.
Signs of oral and dental diseases in dogs and cats include bad breath, loose teeth that may be discoloured or covered in tartar, shying away when the animal's mouth is touched, drooling, dropping food from the mouth, bleeding of the gums, loss of appetite or weight loss.
If you think your animal needs dental care we recommend that you make an appointmet with us. Anaesthesia-free dental procedures are not able to clean beneath the gum line to prevent periodontal disease, nor are they able to look beneath the gum line to identify problems before they become painful and expensive to treat. We highly recommend a professional dental cleaning under general anaesthesia with its long-term benefits for your pet's overall health.
Prevention of the most common oral disease in pets consists of frequent removal of the dental plaque and tartar that forms on teeth that are not kept clean.
