Dental disease is very common in dogs, cats and rabbits.
It can cause halitosis (bad breath), difficulty eating, gum infections which can lead to abscess formation and bacteraemia/septicaemia (infection in the blood), severe pain and even disease around the eye and eye socket.
As with most problems, prevention is better than cure, and we are able to offer a range of products and diets, as well as advice on their correct use, which will, with your help, assist in keeping your pet’s dental health at the best possible level throughout life.
However, just as with humans, regular dental hygiene measures at home are not sufficient to completely prevent dental disease, and it is advisable for most pets to undergo some dental treatment at the vets at some time or times in their lives. Dental treatment is a routine part of our work and we will give you advice on what treatment, if any, your pet may need.
