 Caring for Companion Animals

 

Teeth 

Dental disease is very common in dogs and cats, especially as they get older.  It can cause chronic pain and discomfort, which is often not noticed as they tend to keep eating, despite sore teeth.  Bacteria living in tartar can migrate to the bloodstream and affect other organs, such as heart and kidneys.  In smaller dogs and cats, rotten teeth can weaken the jaw and lead to an increased risk of jaw fractures.


We use an ultrasonic descaler to remove any tartar and then assess the teeth for problems that may necessitate teeth being extracted.


Pets are normally keen to eat quite soon after they wake up, even if they have had teeth removed.  We will check your pet a few days after their dental work, to ensure their mouth is healing well.  Your pet can subsequently have free dental check-ups every 6 months.
