Dental Care and Advice
Pets can’t tell us when they are in pain and one of the most common sources of pain for pets is poor dental health. Dental disease for dogs and cats can cause tooth and gum infections which can make your pet seriously ill. Stinky breath is often a sign of existing disease in adult cats and dogs, a scale and polish under anaesthesia is often the best treatment to bring your pet’s teeth back like new again. Feeding strategies are very important and can contribute significantly to dental health. Our trained staff can give you advice on foods, dental chews, check-ups and cleaning your pet’s teeth so that they can live a happy and healthy life with less pain and risk and minimal expense to you. Give us a call to make an appointment for a dental check up for your pet. They will receive a thorough visual dental examination from one of our experienced vets. Please note that in some cases a mild sedative may be needed to facilitate a full examination of your pet’s teeth. If your pet requires treatment, digital dental Xrays may be required and you may be referred to our nearest Dental Xray facility at Newhaven, Leongatha or Wonthaggi.
