When it comes to dental disease, prevention is key. We strongly recommend tooth-brushing, as this is gold standard care for our pets’ teeth, as well as recommending regular dental check-ups which can be done as part of a pets’ annual healthcheck and vaccination appointment.
For any client who is concerned about their pets’ teeth we also offer FREE of charge nurse appointments for a thorough oral examination and to discuss dental disease prevention and management. We can offer tips on how to brush your pet’s teeth, as well as advising on a range of products which may be useful in managing signs of disease in those pets who are predisposed or who have already received dental treatment.
For our clients whose pets have undergone dental treatment, we offer follow-up appointments with the nurse to check the mouth has healed if extractions have been carried out, as well as advise on further disease prevention. We will then write to you three months after treatment and invite you in for a nurse check-up, which is vital in checking the progress of any at-home disease prevention measures you have put in place, as well as an opportunity to check the teeth again and ensure everything still looks healthy!
If you have any concerns about your pet’s teeth then please contact the surgery without delay.
