Firstly, we recommend you have your pet's teeth examined by one of our Veterinarians on a regular basis. This is typically done at your pets annual health check, however if you have any concerns, including bad breath, plaque build up or bleeding gums, please book in to see us..
If necessary, we may recommend a follow up appointment for a professional dental clean. Each of our three clinics provide state-of-the-art dental x-ray imaging facilities and dental scaling machines. Your pet needs to be anaesthetised to carry out a thorough dental examination, and to clean all their teeth without distressing them. Once anaesthetised, a complete dental examination is performed. This process involves charting all present teeth and evaluating their condition, including the degree of tartar, gingivitis (gum inflammation) and any pockets in the gums around the teeth.
