Dental Health

Dental health is important for general health and well-being, and dental disease can be painful and smelly. Bad breath is not normal!

 

Many diseases can be complicated by poor dental health. Look out for halitosis, salivation and possibly difficulty when eating, although usually pets will bravely tolerate pain and bad smell without complaint. This can be a hidden disease and many animals suffer as a result. 

Specially designed dry foods are amazing for maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and also we have food and water additives, teeth-brushing, treats and toys that can be easy and useful. However, plaque and calculus gradually accumulate and dental cleaning is required.

Prevention is essential, but if necessary, we offer a full range of dental care from dental X-rays, cleaning and dental surgery.
