Dentistry

Dental health, when poor, can affect the immune system and increase the risk of heart disease as well as being very painful. Prevention is key and while the right diet can help, some breeds need regular tooth brushing to prevent dental disease progressing.  Here’s how we can help:

  • Free nurse dental clinics – the nurse will assess your dog’s teeth and make recommendations based on their diet and lifestyle to improve dental health. They will also show you how to effectively get your dog used to having their teeth brushed
  • Scale and polish under general anaesthesia – this is the only way to completely remove all plaque that has accumulated including under the gum line. Once completely removed you can more effectively implement a preventative regime.
  • Extractions under general anaesthesia – for badly damaged teeth, or those associated with severe infections.
