Dog Dental Care

Just like in humans, dog dental care is highly important too.

Poor dental health in dogs is not only painful, but can affect the immune system and increase the risk of diseases that affect the heart, liver, kidneys and brain.

Prevention is key and while the right diet can help, many breeds need regular tooth brushing to prevent dog dental disease progressing and requiring a more in-depth visit to the ‘dog dentist’.

Here’s how our friendly team 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 brush your dog’s teeth effectively, and talk you through the range of dog dental care products available.
  • Dog descale 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 dental care routine.
  • Tooth extractions under general anaesthesia – for dogs with badly damaged teeth, or those associated with severe infections.

At Pilgrims Vets in the New Forest, we have state-of-the-art dental equipment and clinical facilities that enable us to provide first-class dental treatment for dogs.
