Oral Health

 Do your pets teeth look like this?


But you want them to look like this?


Book your pet in today for a dental cleaning and check-up. Often our pets oral health is neglected, which can cause severe gingivitis resulting in tooth loss, gum recession or even other health issues. Gingivitis if caught early can be reversible, however it is often left too long without treatment and causes permanent damage. It can also be unpleasant for us as owners because tartar build-up can cause foul smelling breath.

You can practice dental care at home by brushing your pets teeth, with either a finger toothbrush or soft bristled toothbrush and make sure you use pet toothpaste as human toothpaste has fluoride which is toxic to animals. Also feeding a specially formulated diet is a good way to prevent tartar.
