We all know how important it is to look after our own teeth. Pet’s teeth and gums need just as much attention so they stay healthy and keep their smile.

Plaque builds up on teeth and combines with minerals in saliva to produce calculus, a hard material that needs an ultrasonic descaler to remove it.

Signs of dental disease can include one or more of the following… bad breath (halitosis), dribbling, a reluctance or refusal to eat, red or bleeding gums, dark stained or loose teeth and pawing at the mouth. Ignoring these signs can lead to problems affecting the jaw bone, throat and even diseases in organs like the heart and liver.

Getting your pet checked for dental disease is easy, just contact the surgery and arrange a free check up with one of our nurses.
