COVID-19 update: Client advice on what to do during the Coronavirus crisis
Advice on keeping your pet's teeth clean
Our aim is to promote awareness of the importance of Veterinary Dentistry. Dental disease doesn't just mean smelly breath - it is a whole body disease. Infection can spread to affect the kidneys, heart valves and other areas.
Our surgeries are equipped with state of the art dental facilities, with dental X-ray machines as well as high and low speed burrs, polishers, suction and ultrasonic descalers. This enable us to provide the best quality dental care.
More than 85 percent of dogs and cats over four-years-old have some form of periodontal disease. Senior dogs, those 7-years-old and up, are especially susceptible to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is a painful inflammatory condition in which bacteria attacks the gums, ligaments and bone tissue that surround and support the teeth. If left unchecked, bacteria from the mouth can enter the bloodstream and travel to major organs, starting infections there and seriously compromising the health of your pet. That's why it is important to have your pet's teeth examined by your vet on a routine basis.
If warning signs are present, your pet needs veterinary attention.
