Dental disease is one of the most common problems that may effect your pet. Not only is dental disease painful for your pet, but the increased bacteria in their mouth can be associated with other conditions such as kidney disease, heart disease, and liver disease. As many as eight in ten pets have dental disease!
How do I know if my pet has dental disease?
Watch out for:
- smelly breath
- drooling or dropping food from their mouth
- a loss of appetite
- weight loss
What does dentistry involve at The Veterinary Surgery?
Cats and dogs can rest easy knowing that we have their dental health as a top priority!
We can’t ask your pet to “open wide” – so dogs and cats with dental disease need a general anaesthetic to allow us to assess their teeth and clean thoroughly under the gum line. Severely diseased teeth are potentially very painful and may require extraction to avoid future problems.
